By the introduction of Malay/Old English Game crosses, and with the skill of British fanciers, the Modern Game fowl was evolved as a pure fanciers exhibition bird in contrast to the pit Games used for cock fighting. The Malay Cross was used to improve “reach” and for tighter feathering. Those olden day breeders are to be respected for the skill by which they eliminated by breeding the coarseness of the Malay.
