    I know I’ve posted about these chickies before but now they’re much older (3 months old) We got them out out the bantam bin at Tractor Supply and they were noticeably smaller than the other bantams in their bin. One is definitely a cockerel and the other is definitely a pullet! I was thinking they were seremas but now I’m not sure and I’m nervous that they’re Old English Game Bantams and I’ve heard they’re known to be aggressive. The top pictures are of the cockerel and the bottom picture is of the pullet. If you need any baby pictures I have some, just lemme know!

    Looks like you have a pair of Brassy Back Old English Game Bantams.

    They look like Old English Games to me too. I wouldn't be too worried about aggression, I've had quite a few OEGB roosters over the years, and they are some of the nicest roos I've raised.

    Ah ok! While I’m disappointed they’re not seremas they’re still very cute! Today my pullet latched on to one of my younger birds for no reason but since she’s so small nothing really happened lol other than that they’re so friendly and calm!

    We have several OEGB from the bantam bin. Our cockrel is my daughters pet. He is also the smallest guy in that pen, but is top dog for sure. He seems to see us as a vantage point. If one of us picks him up, he wants to be up high. Shoulder, head, raised arm. All of the pullets come up to us, and some like to be picked up and scratched. Not one of them are aggressive, even at 8 months old.
