    I Haven't ever had anything to do with Old English Game, and I would like to buy some Fowl size OEG some time next year. I would like to know more of the colours for the old English, so could you guys post pictures of the different oeg you can get.(colours you can get)

    Are you looking for largefowl or bantams? Since you mentioned "fowl" but did not also say large, I am not sure. Largefowl OEG are much less common than the bantams. http://www.amerpoultryassn.com/PDF Forms/APA Recognized Breeds and Varieties Sept2012.pdf lists APA recognized breeds and varieties. Bantam OEGs are listed on pages 2 & 3, largefowl on pages 17 & 18. In my experence, the list is not always up to date. For example, bearded self-blue silkies were recognized in December 2010, but are not listed here, even though the list says it is current as of January 2012. I can't speak to how current it is with OEG, though.

    Sorry, I was talking about LF. I have a book which has all the colours of the OEG, but when I try to look up the colours I don't know, all sorts comes up.
    EG:I look up "Dun breasted blue dun" and black reds and gingers and all sorts come up.
    So I was wondering if I could post a name of a colour, and then could one of you post a picture of a Oeg of that colour?
