This is a Brazilian bird that was developed in part from oversized fighting cocks crossed on such birds as Plymouth Rocks.

It is a very tall bird, the males being over 90 cm tall and the females must be over 80 cm.

Their meat is said to be very good. They don't make good broodies due to their size, although they have a docile temperament.
