CONSIDERED AN ASIAN FOWL RATHER THAN AN AMERICAN BREED BECAUSE OF ITS ROOTS, ROUNDHEADS EXHIBITS BLACK SPURS AND ARE PEACOMBS, COMIGN ETHER YELLOW LEGGED OR WHITE LEGGED, RED EYED AND PALE YELLOW HACKLES. THE GAMEFOWL ARE MEDIUM TO HIGH STATIONED WITH AN AVERAGE WEIGHT OF 2 TO 2.4 KGS. ROUNDHEADS ARE SMART FIGHTERS WITH WEAVING ABILITIES OR THE OFTEN PRIZED EVASION TRAIT OF SIDE-STEPPING BECAUSE OF THEIR NATURAL AGILITY. THEY ARE ALSO VERY AGGRESSIVE, AND SUPERBLY FAST CUTTERS. ROUNDHEADS ARE KNOWN TO POSSESS DEVASTATING LEG POWER AND ARE CHARACTERISTICALLY FLYERS THAT BREAK HIGH. THE MOST FAMOUS AMONG THE MANY ROUNDHEADS IS THE LACY ROUNDHEAD, ORIGINATED BY JUDGE LACY. THERE ARE OTHER ROUNDHEAD FAMILIES LIKE THE BRUNERS, SHELTONS, ALLEN AND BOSTON. THEY CROSS WELL WITH CLARETS, BUTCHERS, GREYS, AND OF COURSE, HATCHES. ROUNDHEADS ARE RATHER TRICKY TO CONDITION AS THEY TEND TO MATURE OR PEAK EARLY AS STAGS SO YOU FIGHT YOUR BEST BIRD ACCORDING TO ITS STATE OF READINESS.
