Old English Game? Phoenix? And what color?

    Hi everyone,
    This spring I purchased this cute little chipmunk-y looking chick at the feed store. We are pretty sure that Cleo is a she, and we think that she is an Old English Game, but my mother has been looking around at various sources, but can't decide what color she is. (I hope this works, this is the first time I ever tried to post pictures) [​IMG]
    Thanks for any input!

    tfpets Mmm, tastes like chicken

    What a pretty bird! I have one similar and she's hard to get a pic of cause she's a runner...some differences, but in a poultry book I have, I saw ones like yours called Brown OEGB. Not very specific, is it??

    see how the tail is so long? Could it be a phoenix? I know there are silver phoenix. Could this be a golden phoenix?


    eta: I am not too familiar with phoenix, but they do have long tails

    She is NOT an old english game and she is NOT bbred!

    I think she is a Phoenix, not sure of color though.

    What a find! Beautiful bird!

    she is NOT black breasted red, they have the distinct three color pattern that you do not see on Cleo. I almost think she looks like a campine color with a more reddish tone. I am sure IDEAL sells that color in OEGs. I thought her tail seemed too long for an OEG but I am probably wrong there.
