    Is it from Ideal? It is a silver pencilled (as in silver pencilled hamburg)color, if the males are the same I think that Ideal sells campine colored OEGB.

    Yes, I got them from Ideal. I also have gold ones that are marked the same way.

    Are the males the same pattern or are they solid white or gold with black in the wings and tail? Or are they patterned like the females?

    You have the Silver campine/Golden campine old english game bantams. I believe Ideal developed them by crossing a Silver campine roo over a OEGB hen etc. however. Im not saying your silver is the silver campine Old englishes. She could be a Silver quil... i would say your other maybe Red quil but she is a bit more orange colored then Red quils. Anyways. if you want to see these breeds im referring to or maybe learn some about OEGBs. http://www.bantychicken.com/cgi-bin/OEGBCA/index.cgi is a good site. the silver quil is in Varieties. on the left side. Red quil-gallery 2nd page. go to unrecognized varieties. Hope i helped.!

    Yeah, I just checked Ideal and they have campine colored OEGB. We have some pencilled hamburgs that the females are that color, the males will be black tailed gold or white.
