    My son wants some. We saw some at a breeders house and it was the most curious thing ever. It kept coming up to us like it wanted us to pick it up. But, is this typical of the breed? How is the breed in general? Are they more of a 'stand offish" type of bird? Or are they friendly? Thanks!

    I assume you're talking about Old English Game Bantams. Temperment varies from strain to strain. Many of the females tend to be particularly friendly & make great birds for kids. Males can be a different matter. Some strains, perticularly some Blacks, tend to be quite aggressive.
