    I think I may have decided what I want my breeding flock to be...

    I have been eyeing the Old English Game Bantam for months, now, and I will most likely get some next year/this coming april. I want Lemon Blue, but I a not certain. Suggestions?

    I have decided that if I do get OEGBs, the coop will be called Coop Tarleton (please don't copy), the flock will be called the Tarleton's, and my head roo will be named Terrell.

    Terrell is Old English, and means the Thunder Ruler. I took the time to find an Old English name for him.
    Tarleton is Old English, and means The Thunder Ruler's Estate. Suiting, huh?
    Then, I would have some hens, Edwina, Ethel, Godiva, Bliss, and Margarita (it means Daisy in Old English. Yes, I know, it's an alcoholic beverage. Too bad! XD )

    What do you think?

    I had Old English Game Bantams in my original flock many years ago. I really enjoyed them, although they had typical redneck names: Little Bubba. Mr. Banty Pants, Little Big Man, Daisy, Eula Maye, Lucky Louise, Little Red Man, Chaw (really!).

    They were fun to have. I really enjoyed them. Good luck with yours!

    I really enjoy my Old English Game chickens. Keep in mind that they are really good flyers for chickens.

    You chose great names. I just came up with a new nickname for my alpha rooster of the OBG flock - Sir Cluckalot. He starts clucking to the hens the minute I get near the coop to tell the hens treats are coming soon.
