    Genetic Makeup of the Brazilian Fighting Cock

    Hi,

    Found this somewhere and I thought it would be good reading for all of you. At least we now know the real genetics of this type of rooster. Maybe someday, they'll do one on the "Hatch"
    Enjoy!

    Re: Genetic Makeup of the Brazilian Fighting Cock

    Yes, I agree with Tonio boss JC, that there is fighting cock in the leghorn...

    I have read some article some time back that the broiler chicken used cornish blood to develop it and the cornish chicken was developed using oriental blood mainly "asil". You can see the asil traits in cornish chickens. Actually if ones not careful you might be buying cornish chickens instead of "asil' fighting chickens...

    Re: Genetic Makeup of the Brazilian Fighting Cock

    ??? the word is..

    chickens are chickens its not like comparing a dog to a tiger or a chimpaNZEE. the only difference between a leggern and a gamefowl is that gamefowls were selected for aggresiveness whilst the leggern for meat production. but dont discount any leggern looking chicken in the "travesia" that darn thing might be loaded with nux/easy win or some speed drug, remember we are fighting with knives.

    for the brazilian the only advantage it has compared towards our native orientals is that it has more pedigree, i mean if you will import fighting cocks to brazil why would you import those "tiangge" unknown lines versus importing from qualified sportsmen?

    --just my rambling thoughts..

    Re: Genetic Makeup of the Brazilian Fighting Cock

    Hello Everyone, just a piece of my mind to share after reading this paper (BTW thanks a lot, admin, for this) The conclusion made is the following: " In conclusion, the Brazilian gamebird, as well as the breeds reared for food production has originated from the red jungle fowl of the genus Gallus, species gallus and subspecies domesticus". The aim: to ID the position of the Brazilian gamebird in the phylogenetic tree of the genus Gallus by nucleotide sequence analysis of the mitochondrial DNA D-loop region.

    And so it was done. In the discussion, it is interesting to note that the Bgamebirds and those used for food production belong to the same clusterC2. The findings indicated that crossings happened between Bgamebirds and those for food production. It was mentioned that the mitochondrial DNA is transferred to the progeny by maternal strain and it was suggested in the discussion that roosters of the fighting birds were mated to hens of the food type. (By the way, although we can not argue the results, discussions are not always accurate 100% to a certain degree. And may not always be complete.Oftentimes, it is limited only to the stock-knowledge of those involved in the discussion.)

    Anyway to continue, it said:" Moreover, it is not possible to evidence a genetic precedence of a given breed over the others."

    It was also discussed that the fighting breed may have been older than the singing breed but what is a fun interest to me is that the fighting birds may have come directly from the red jungle fowl OR from the egg-type chickens?

    It is very informative now that I'm into breeding of game fowls venture, genetic makeup or good bloodlines are most essential in winning the fight.

    Re: Genetic Makeup of the Brazilian Fighting Cock

    a thought and fact that always make me scratch my head is that, whenever I read the so called "expert" reports is that, they always seemed confused or have no idea about geography. countries like japan, india and the southeast asian states are just but political divisions, but i just want to point out to the "experts" that they are in the same region, for these genius from brasilia, it is like comparing native fauna of the dominican republic, haiti, jamaica and puerto rico. you really have to pull hairs to find differences. the brazilian gamefowl is just an import that nicked and were collectively bred for the style of fighting that brazilians agreed upon.
