Over the many years that Game Cocks have been fought in America a particular breed evolved being a mixture of Old English Game, Irish Game, Spanish Game and the Oriental infusion of Aseel and Shamo Game completed  this genetic soup. Because of the different Spur styles, Slashers (knives), Short heel or the Long Heel the Fighting Cock we see today is the result of the years of selection for fighting style and gameness;   obviously constitution, strength and cutting ability must be of utmost importance and today on the show bench these birds can and must be judged with this in mind. The American Game should have strong contraction of wings and thigh. Feathers should be tight over entire body, producing an overall hardness of feathers, which is characteristic of the breed.
