What are Game Birds?

Post by Tiramisu on Mon Jul 05, 2010 2:20 am

"Game birds would include pheasants, wild turkeys, quail, partridge, mallards, grouse, ducks, geese, woodcock, snipe, rails."

"A “game” bird is literally any bird that is hunted for sport, especially one used for food. Game birds include ducks, geese, grouse, quail, doves, turkeys, and pheasants among others. The ducks and their allies, geese and swans, are usually separated into their own category, “waterfowl.” The term game bird is usually meant to describe a bird in the order Galliformes, which would include pheasants, peafowl, francolin, partridge, quail, grouse, turkey, guineafowl and cracids (chachalacas, guans and curassows). "

I have a question about game bird, for chickens. Are only like games and old english games (are those the same?) considered game birds? Or are asian type breeds like shamo's considered in a game breed for chickens too?
So, what would constitute a chicken being a game bird?

Alot of game breeders wouldnt consider Old English Games especially the bantams Gamebirds. Shamos, brazillians, Asil ect are Oriental Game so they are game birds as long as they are game. The most common Game bird is the pit game or what is being called American Games.

Thanks! I was wondering on that, I knew the asian breeds were game, but didn't think to category them into Oriental Games. lol.
