    We thought for sure we had Welsummers but they're laying off white eggs!

    The 2 hens are Old English Game Hens. The silver one is also referred to as Silver Duckwing. The other one a Golden Duckwing.
    I have both of them currently. Check my pix.. Cant help you with the roosters since I cant keep any.[​IMG]

    There is enough to read for 40 days and 40 nights, Here is a start on reviews on BYC. https://www.backyardchickens.com/products/old-english-game/reviews/7233
    You can also read in Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_English_Game_fowl There are numerous threads on the breed as well. Enjoy your reading.[​IMG]

    I personally just luv these cuties. They are feisty enough to carry their own in a flock of standard chickens. That does not mean they are at the top of the pecking order.

    Thanks. These would be bantam version cause they're really small! Kinda disappointed as we wanted good meat and layers but these were our first chickens and we had no idea about them! I'd like to try Delawares.
