Game bantams?????

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am going to look at a few pullets this weekend.  The lady said that they were Roundhead/claret.   I have no idea what they are but I thought that I could find my milli a few girls until I hatch some of his own kind out.  Can someone please help me.  I am suppose to meet her saturday morning.  They are $2.00 each but if I take all of the hens and pullets I will get a better deal.  I am not sure what to do.  Or even if I should go.  she told me they were small in size and brown in color with some black tail feathers and red feathers around their necks.

Thank you in advance for the help.

It is greatly appriciated.

Those are standard american game fowl breeds.  Maybe she developed a bantam version using OEGBs? 

I love your Millie roo!  big_smile

Thank you.  He is beautiful.  He was given to me.  He needs a few girls to claim.  My big girls do not like him so he takes alot of stuff.  I thought I might get a few of these until I can hatch out some of his own kind!
Thank you for the info.
Do you know where I might find a picture of these birds?

It's easier to find pictures of the roosters rather than the hens.  I did a google image search on each of the breeds and put hen or pullet after the name.
