I will send you a big box of chocolates if you can show me a picture of a chicken in a normal standing position that measures out at 36" against a yardstick. No disrespect, but I don't believe such a chicken exists. [-X

Really? Because I offered $1,000 for any rooster that was a true 34" tall, and I've never had a single taker.

Perhaps because not every every gamefowl owner in the world read your post :-''' We dont have roosters in the uk there cockerels for those under a year and cocks for those over a year.

Don't have a recent pic but will try and get one and put it on here as soon as I can, along with pix of the two O Shamo pullets I also have.

In the meantime here's a couple of my Chu Shamo Stag :)
He's quite a big fella already, last time I weighed him he was about 9 pounds!!!
