    Re: Size question

    id rather have cutting ability and dead game traits before I worried about size. mine are anywhere from medium to high station. some lower than others. if u want small and light weight maybe ur looking for a batam? u want something agile? I know some kelsos are built like a tank. we don't prefer those personally.

    Not to hard. What i really like is that they're very good crossing fowl! They make other breeds good cutting machines. And they dont really bring down the station of other fowl!

    I value the traits, body type and station of a family of gamefowl, and their association/performance with which weapon you plan on using. There's a difference. Here's an observation in reference to size. I noticed that in American shows there's fewer bigger birds being shown. A bigger bird being one over 5-6, biggest at one show was 5-2. Maybe we can get some size observations for LK and SK over the last few years.

    that is something to think about, i get reminded everyday of why im a newbie every time i learn something new haha. but on a serious note, why do you suppose that is? ive never been to a show before but i think i might givem a try since im spending more time in cali than in mexico.
