    I just purchased 3 Brown red game hens at the local feed store for my DH and his game Roo for Christmas. They are very excited about the new arrivals. When they all get settled in and the Roo slow down on his dancing I will post pics of them. They are very pretty girls.[​IMG]

    I have really enjoyed mine and yes, they are very pretty.
    Mine are bantams and I am amazed at how calm the little roo is.
    I've hatched 6 babies from them (actually a friend hatched one) and the three oldest yielded 2 roos and 1 pullet.
    Out of the last 2 hatches (one week apart) I know the two oldest are a pair, and the youngest I think is a pullet because it's only a week younger and isn't showing any signs of a comb, wattle, or anything rooish.

    Here's my parent stock and the oldest three,

    They are very pretty. They are miniture versions of my DH new girls (standards). They are not real friendly right now but I hope they will come around.
