    I was given several of these a few years ago. The lady called them jungle fowl. The roosters have a white body with dark blue/black markings and tail feathers. The hens are shy and broody. The chickens are a small bird, the legs are olive colored, the eggs are small and light tan. They will roost high up in the trees. The roosters will fight to the death if kept together, and will fight through the cage or fence if one gets out. Especially in the spring. Any suggestions or comments will be helpfull.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    They look like Old English Games to me. Sound like them, too.

    Thank you all for your input. I noticed the roosters body and thigh color is not white, but the same dark blue/black as the tail. For now we will call then American Game birds. With the duck wing feature![​IMG]

    They're lovely. The hen in the last two pics looks very similar in coloration to my silver gray dorking.

    I used to raise game chickens and they look like hatch grays to me. Very nice looking birds.
