About Old English Game Chickens
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
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.
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.
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
