I sort of inherited them, they roost way up in the tree, and are pretty wild. Should I keep them??
This has nothing to do with your question...but I love your name...how funny!!!!
If you start putting out feed they'll eventually stay around, if you want them to. If it were me, I'd keep them and try to catch them. They make great brooders, when they'll sit that is.
I'd keep em around. I have an OEG bantam that I caught wild from an office Park where the physicians were afraid she was going to get hit by a car (and she was all alone laying her eggs in the generator outside). She was completely wild.I brought her home, fed her and she has tamed down quite a bit on her own. She still roosts is a bush by the house though.
She went broody & I let her set on two big std size eggs which she hatched & raised. Games are resilient, hardy, self-reliant and as the other post indicated, they are very good broodies. My little OEG is very predator savy too.
Old english game bantams are interesting little birds.
They tend to be naturally flighty, so like said above, they are very predator saavy.
Just go out, take some seed and bread and spend some time with them.
Eventually they'll start to come around and even take food from your hand and come when called.
