    I have two chickens that look the same, one is slightly smaller then the other, but I think the bigger one is a rooster, but I am not sure... Here are some pictures... and are they Old English Games?

    They appear to be OEGBs [​IMG] I think the first one is a hen, but the second I'm not sure. It stands like a rooster, but the comb and tail are looking to be more hen-ish in my opinion.

    Both are looking like BB Red pullets to me.

    They look like OEGB B.B Red Pullets. Roosters at that stage tend to have larger combs, black breasts and some red neck feathers. The hens typically get that brownish red breast and some yellow in their neck feathers.

    B.B Red means Black Breasted Red, which is a color type.

    Here is Anne my B.B Red OEGB Hen with her five chicks which are also B.B Reds.
