I did not find a Black-Breasted Red Old English Game Bantam thread so I thought one should be initiated. My 12 yr. old son is raising BB Red OEG bantams as one of his 5 breeds of chickens he is working on to improve the breed. What's interesting about this breed is that the male and female chickens have very different and distinctive coloring. Because of this color variation in the sexes, you often times will hear breeders talk about a chicken referring to it as having a good hen or rooster line. This is somewhat confusing at first because you see a hen and hear it comes from more of a rooster line or vice versa. These chickens seem to be one of the smaller bantam breeds. But do not let their size fool you ! What they lack in size, they seem to make up in attitude, at least for the roosters. The hens have an intricate pattern and are very sweet in nature. It is so comical to see a little tiny BB Red OEG bantam try and flare out it's tiny mane of neck feathers (hackle feathers) against a rooster more than twice his size. They look like little lions bobbing up and down, almost in mirror images with the fence between them. The roosters need to be dubbed (combs and wattles trimmed down to barely there or nothing) to be eligible to show. Thank goodness we have an expert chicken judge friend that can show him how to do this, when the time comes. We look forward to seeing more pics of other BB Red OEG bantams on here ! You can view all of our pics on our website.
