    So I received 6 chicks from Cackle that were labeled "Jungle Fowl" and are obviously not at this point. 3 cockerels and 3 pullets...I really can't tell the difference between the AGB & OEGB. My birds don't seem to have the upright stance that I see everyone's OEGB having. They are 3 months old. or maybe they are mixed? :/

    Don't have pics of the girls but they all have the BB Red hen coloring and dark gray legs with bright red faces and earlobes

    the black breasted red in the first pic with the white earlobe is a "jungle fowl"

    the other is a blue breasted red

    i dont see any american games on cackles site but could have over looked them if anything they are oegb


    these are their red jungle fowl

    my pullets don't look anything like that as they don't have yellow feet and their faces are redder. I thought perhaps they were selling AGB as "Jungle Fowl"

    One rooster has yellow legs, The other has either yellow or white? And they have red earlobes? That sounds like oegbantam. Kinda looks that way to me . too
