    I recently acquired 4 game birds from a friend! He just didn't want them with his flock... Anywho! trying to figure out what I got! I was told they were American Greys.. They were hatched out on 9-25.

    I have been trying to do research on them, but its very limited bc of their reputation. Any help would be appreciated!

    Down on the bottom is says post a reply or start a new thread! Im new to this whole forum thing... I love my chickens! I just picked up these 4 from a friend who said that their were 2 roos and 2 hens... the 3 grey ones are fighting all over the place now! My farm is a "sanctuary" if you want to call it! I have a 3 year old meat bird- LOL! I have 18 chickens total. These are my first true game birds! I have Bantams, but they just aren't the same... their temperament is much different!!
