If you are OK with small amounts of eggs brooded, then the OEGB would be great, they can fly to the moon though. The standards are excellent flyers too, and while they do well in a free range environment, they bare confinement well. You will cut in to broodiness with confinement though. They can be kept in 5 x 5 foot pens, but will brood more readily in something along the lines of 8x8. I routinely free range and let them go broody, and then move them to a smaller pen of my choosing, to let the "bait nests" pick up another broody. The flightiness thing is why I've switched over to more Oriental games, they don't fit the winter hardy free range, roost in a tree lifestyle, though, due to their tight feathering, so that is why I have the crosses. The ones with Oriental in them also don't roost as high in the trees, which makes it easier if you want to catch one, compared to the standard OEG/American Game.
Good to know. Will think on games as that was my problem with them before...too tempting to fly into trees, and while we have a lot of trees here, they border neighbors and makes it too tempting to hop, skip, and jump.
Maybe best if I stick with the calmer Silkies and Cochins.
Thanks for the good information on games. Most helpful.
