MODERN GAME CHICKEN

Modern Games are a tightly feathered bird with long legs and neck, which give it a tall, slender appearance. Males of should have their combs and wattles removed to enhance their long, slim shape. Their feathers should be short, hard, and held very close to their bodies. They don’t stand cold weather well because of these short feathers and need plenty of exercise to maintain muscle tone.
