    I really like the look of game chickens to have for fun, do they have attitudes? also I love the look of exotic banties like japenese etc. are they mean

    We have had OEG's and OEGB's and both were very good natured. We have a couple of OEGB hens right now that are kind of touch me nots and we have a beautiful Wheaten OEG Roo that is really quiet and all our girls just love him.

    Never had any, but everyone I know who has swears that Modern Games are extremely sweet. I know of a 3-year old girl who sleeps with her modern game (hen I think) on her pillow every night.

    I've seen OEG be nice to other birds or be mean, depends on their personality. Had one that was so sweet with his girl, giving her food and such while another one would peck the hens and chicks if they got close to his food.
  5. Hi! I have Modern Game bantams and Japanese and they've all been / are sweeties! I've never had a mean one yet.
    The MGB come out of the shell friendly and they are so darn cute!
