Indian Game, also known as Cornish Game, originate (as their alternative name suggests) from Cornwell, England. The rather large and stocky bird is not well know for their egg producing ability (they can produce 160-180 eggs per annum), but are decent table birds. Indian Game may not be suitable for backyard producers or enthusiasts as they require a substantial amount of space and require extra shelter as they tend to have thinner feathers than other breeds. They are generally aggressive birds, however they are relatively easy to handle. The Indian Game is highly prone to parasites.
