Some of our crazy chickens – Old English Game Fowl

Humble Garden: Olde English Game Hens and Rooster

Meet one of our Old English Game roosters (we have two) and one of the hens (other types of chickens shown = Rhode Island Red and a Minorca). We adopted these chickens from a teenager my oldest daughter met on a chicken board. He had bred and incubated these chickens himself but the town he lived in caught on to his chicken hobby and so he had to get rid of them. Its been interesting watching them grow because we were not sure what this kid had bred!

Turned out looking pretty good.

This is another one, a Bantam Old English Spangled Game Hen, we call her Quailie (you may have seen her in a previous post)

Qualie: Chicken or, what?

Chickens and chicken breeding is fun stuff!

    Unusual looking chicken, it looks like a grey, black toppy type, how much does it weigh?

  4. Looks like I left a comment meant for the chickens in the goat’s space. (Nice goat, too. But the fowl are splendid. I wish I could keep a few chickens here to help control our enormous population of tiny white snails!)
