    I have two small flocks of Old English Game Bantams that I have to chose one of them to keep. Because I don't want to decide wrong I want you, the chicken expert population, to take a vote. I refuse to split up ANY flocks, so give me the pro nd cons of each bird but give your final word on which flock to keep instead of which birds. I will post every pic I have of all the birds.

    This is flock 1, it consists of a Fawn duckwing rooster, a silver duckwing hen (hen 1) , and a black breasted (i think) hen (hen 2)

    Hen #2 in your first flock is a brassy back hen. And you will get some fawn duckwings, some silver duckwings and some mutts from that flock. From flock two, your hen doesnt look bad but a chocolate rooster should be solid chocolate, none of the silver he demonstrating. My choice would be keeping the fawn duckwing rooster and the chocolate hen, as you will get some of each out of that mating. Fawn Duckwings were instrumental in producing chocolates. Crossing fawn duckwing over Brassy back will produce mutts, and using that chocolate/silver rooster will produce mutts...
