About Modern Game ChickensAbout Modern Game Chickens

Modern Games are a bantam breed prized almost entirely for their abilities as show chickens. They are very easy to tame and make for a simple but elegant breed, popular with most fanciers. They aren't very well-suited for laying eggs though. They are also not the best meat birds as they are so small to begin with and skinny.

  Modern Games are known to be extremely aggressive, so extra care should be taken when interacting with Roosters. Even the hens have aggressive tendencies at times. They don't like being confined for very long, but they can be trained to be friendly toward their owners.

Everything about them is upright, so they stand tall and carry their short tails high. Their shoulders are distinguishable as they poke out from their bodies. Their legs, while long, can be a number of different colors depending on the overall color type of the bird. The white variety has yellow legs, partridge colors have green legs, and black Modern Games have black legs. The actual color of the feathers spreads the gamut of varieties, such as laced blue, golden birchen, wheaten lavender, bloodwing white, and so on. They have extremely small red combs and ear-lobes.

  Modern Games are very poor in the cold winter months, so they require a good heat source for their coop, otherwise they'll freeze. They are very active and so need a large run to move about in, as well as high perches to hop up onto. However, their legs are actually very fragile, so it's also wise to have lots of soft bedding to cushion falls and the like. Hens can become very broody but it's not recommended you let them do this more than once a year as the strain is immense on their already small bodies.
