    Found these when I responded to a free ad about a month ago. The fellow was gifted them by a girl who was moving and couldn't take them with her. His neighbor complained and he was in trouble with Bylaw office. I've built them a tractor/coop their size that the LF chickens and dogs cannot get into. They are charming, friendly and now free range/own my front yard{and my heart}.
    I've lost track of how many hours searching sites and images and I'm starting to think they are some kind of cross but of what??? Between the two hens I was getting 5 1 3/4" eggs a week, almost can't tell the ends apart. And they fly like grouse, low but far and fast.
    Just wanted to know if they were worth breeding or shall I just enjoy.[​IMG]

    They're either purebred Old English Game of a variety I don't recognize, or Old English Game mixes.

    I wasn't sure of OEG because of his comb. I also considered Dutch because of his colouring but they don't have the white "ears" and had wondered about crosses so was hoping someone who has been breeding bantams might recognize what/which. Many Thanks.
