    The rooster and hens I do believe are about eight months old possibly nine. Not one year old yet. Mixed breeds huh? Wow I was told they are a full breed all of them and when full grown especially the rooster was going to be worth a lot. Like the two Asian ones he said I had. He said when They have chicks and roosters they will be worth more then the others.

    I would agree the hens don't look pure breed but they are adorable for sure! Your roo could be a mix too but he's super pretty. I have a red breated OEGB trio that looks very similar.

    Wow. Ok. I glad I didn't pay for full breed prices. What is a OEGB trio? Thank you all for your inputs. Where can I find pix of that breed? Or even hens breeds?

    Seller might have meant they are Oriental mixed with American game- they can pass for that, a couple generations down. They look more American game but their bodies are a little different and their tails are especially short- could be the Oriental influence.

    Oriental is a class of fighting chickens with a different body type- more upright.

    Possibly they are supposed to be basically an Asian "village chickens" of some sort.. sort of freely bred chickens, often with some Game/Oriental blood running through.
