    I just bought 4 new hens an a roo at the feed store and the hens look exactly like the hen that Rammy and Speckledhen have posted in Rammys topic of "Golden Campine or Rhode Island Red?". The only difference that I can see between these girls and mine, is that mine have greenish legs and these lovely ladies have yellow legs. The guy at the feed store told me that they were some kind of Old English Game hens and that they lay brown eggs. Could this be true?
    I wish that the dock for my camera was working at the moment because I would love to post some pictures of them.

    I automatically think of easter eggers when I think of green eggs. That's my first thought.

    Otherwise, I'm bad without seeing pics! heh

    After looking at the pics you referred too and knowing yours have green legs, I'm going to say EE's too. However, I know nothing about OEG's so I'll have to defer to someone who does.

    I know my game bird has green legs. If you look at the game birds on maybe you might find them.

    Thank you all for helping me. Reveriereptile, the site you sent me to was great. Not only did I find my girls (black breasted O.E.G) but I also found two of my roosters. The roo that came with my girls is a Silver duckwing O.E.G and the small roo I have running with my pheasants is a fawn O.E.G. bantam.
