About Old English Game ChickensAbout Old English Game Chickens

Old English Game are one of the most popular show chickens with fanciers, which is fortunate because they don't provide a lot of meat and they aren't very good layers.  

Old English Games are quick to be trained to their handlers, becoming friendly and calm almost instantly, making them a wonderful choice to have around children. Younger roosters will fight once in a while, but this is common with most any breed. In addition, the hens are so tolerant that they have no problem sharing space with even hens of other breeds. They are perfectly fine with little space and keep fairly quiet, so they are a good choice for a residential area.  

Despite being a bantam and therefore small, Old English Games are strong, muscular birds with thick bodies with a smaller breastbone than most breeds. Their bodies adhere to a triangular shape with a sloping back line and a medium tail held at a semi-high carriage. They hold their wings tightly to their body with well-rounded shoulders. They have a single average-sized red comb, red ear-lobes, and red eyes. They have numerous colors schemes to pick from, none of which are considered better or worse than others in the fanciers’ circuits.    


Old English Games need very little to be happy. They get along with everyone and don't have any inherent problems to consider. However, while the hens are rather broody with their chicks and make great mothers, it is best to remove them from the rest of the flock until the mother is no longer broody and the chicks have begun to mature. Doing so will alleviate any problems that could arise otherwise.
