Recently was given a White Old English Game Roo, Who is now my free ranging yard roo, and is a nice addition for my game hen. He was given to me because he was a bit evil to his past owner....amazingly we are not having any issues with him. My questions arise from my research on the breed itself, and the OEG bantams.......Am I understanding correctly that the OLD ENGLISH GAME BIRD(Pit Fowl) is the oldest recorded breed of domesticated chicken, dating back to before 55 B.C? second question: I have read from 2 different sources that the OEG bantam actually has no relation to the OLD ENGLISH GAME BIRD, and was bred from a combination of seabrights, dutch, and rosecombs, this is contrary to what my son and I had understood....what is the history, and bloodline of the OEG bantam? Also which would be the oldest known pet chicken...The O.E.G Fowl, or the O.E.G.B.? Thanks in advance.
