    Hello,

    My name is Larry and I live in North-central Texas. I exhibited Old English Game Bantams several years ago. My interest has changed to game chickens and I am just starting to breed down some game chickens to the size of American Game Bantams (AGB). The AGB males that are being used are of the Black Breasted Red variety and the hens are pure Kelso. Some are Black Breasted Red and a couple are Wheatens. I have been reading from BYC for some time and appreciate the great posts and what the sponsors are doing.
    Thanks and good luck to all.

    Thank you. I know that game chickens don't have a very good reputation because of their past history and rightly so. I hope to see them at poultry shows and to see them viewed in a different manner. I suspect that will take a long time to change.
