Terracota rooster statues from the Han dynasty in China (206 BC–220 AD).
Look like gamecocks?

A very ancient artifact.

I also think they are gamecocks. Only the selection of big roosters for cockfighting could produce so tough looking birds.

Imo the contribution of China in the creation of the oriental gamecocks is underestimated. The Chinese of the Han empire were wealthy and enterprising. They already made business with Vietnam, India, Persia and even the Roman empire.

I'm sure you're right Philippe.
We still don't get much information from China.
