    Silver Duckwing Old English Game Bantams....Though...I do see some foreign color red in back and a slight straw color in hackles would lead me to believe they could have some Golden Duckwing or even a little Black Breasted Red Old English Game in their genetic make-up....

    maybe some jungle fowl in there...can't really see body carriage

    being a game fowl doesn't mean they are mean...depending on the breeding of the bird in question it can mean many things...most of your OEGB have had most of the game bred out of them...if foks are sticking with keeping the temperment of the bird then males don't get along very well but other than that no issues

    And no, old english game bantams are quite friendly and make great pets as long as they are handled regularly. Mine are some of my friendliest chickens--they will even fly up on to my shoulders to say hello!

    [​IMG] x2 . Game chickens are bold and I think that makes them friendly. Mine are very curious.
