HistoryIndian Game Chickens were developed in Cornwall for enlarged breast meat ,the females of this breed will also fight and although poor layers are good sitters and mothers and are often as strongly muscled as the males. The Dark Cornish of the USA used the breed generally known as 'Indian Game' although the name Cornish is geographically the more correct. Indian Game Chickens are a composite of several different blood lines - Asell (or Asil), Black-Red, Old English and Malay.
