    What does it mean when they are "game"?? I have someone who's selling her pullets and she says they are "buff game hens"..... I don't know what that means. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    probably they are either modern or old english game breeds. but i have never had those yet and could be wrong about that.

    I'm sure they can be it depends on what breed.
    As for your post of a "buff game hens" I am sure you could get a Buff color in any of the breeds I listed.
    You might want to ask what breed of game hen they are selling..

    They are more for show now a days..
    At one time most "game" breeds where used for fighting...
    Most of the hens make great mothers and great layer...
    The rooster are very protective of there hens..
