    We are on the list to call for chickens and goats to be rescued from our local humane society and animal control. In the midst of trying to decide whether or not to put down our best roo Motorcyle, we received this handsome guy yesterday, what do you think he is?

    We can't believe how tame he is! He loves to be held and petted! Can't wait to hear the results!

    I looked up OEG pictures and onle the blue variety has his color legs. Definitely not just a blue though. He's getting narrowed down! I posted a picture of him to the OEG Bantam Club of America people, we'll see if they can figure him out!

    He is a Blue/Red OEG bantam. Very handsome. I saw a trio of these on eggbid not to long ago and the were at $150 bucks!
    Congrats!

    OK, so a fellow from Australia says he is definitely an Old English Game Bantam. His color is called Red-Dun. He says his color is not recognized in the USA. Maybe an "old world" color? Has anyone ever heard of this color?

    He's a gorgeous OEGB! Blue Wheaton or Blue-red, I think they are basically the same color...or I can't tell the difference [​IMG]
