CP dog docking is done only to working dogs now and if you dont want cuts and slits in the tail then it needs to come off so its a good thing but if its just a pet then its not needed 40% of people have not seen a rottweiler with a tail or doberman with a tail and floppy ears they think they are born with out tails and the doberman born with cropped ears (cropped ears is to make the dog look fierce and for the dog to listen more clearly and to pinpoint the noice) all dogs are beautiful and if it is born with it then keep it

back to oeg what breeds are used for fighting or do people cross diffirent birds to get diffirent trates?

See we heading for bad weather says -19 in the paper. Started the vaseline combs, wattles and legs as precaution if the weather gets so cold I am going bring the OEG's into the shed pens, although didn't want to do so early in the year - hope we don't get snow so soon 8-[

It rarely gets really cold down here. The oeg cope with the cold quite well really.

Wasn't too bad here last year coldest got to was -5 but we near the sea so think it kept worst of the weather off! Suprising how warm the oeg's are picked a little pullet up just before and she was toasty warm. one in each pocket would make lovely hand warmers. To the Marans who have loads of undercoat and never seem to get cold, the oeg's have next to none... rain pours off their feathers though :lol:

Feathering is tight on the game birds.

They don't seem to bother about the rain but not keen on the wind.
