The basics:
The American Game Fowl was developed in the United States over the course of a century, from both European and Asian game breeds.  The American Game, was traditionally bred for cockfighting, but now it is becoming rather popular for exhibition and ornamental purposes. 

According to the Gamefowl Preservation Society of Texas, "American Game Fowl originated in the USA from at least 4 different sources of Game Fowl. The 4 different original bloodlines were English, Irish, French, and Spanish. Later infusions of basic bloodlines originated from Cuba and Central and South America. Some of the very best East Indian Asil Fowl came directly from India. Later the English sent families of game fowl to America infused with Asil blood. The original diverse genetic makeup of our American Game Fowl should not detract in any way from the distinct result that we see today.
