    No I don't think they are seramas, they look a little too big to be Seramas and the form isn't quite there. The first roo is splash colored and I don't think seramas come in soilid splash. The other is a hen. They both look like game/crosses to me.

    I'm definitely not the best at guessing breeds, but the top one looks like some kind of game bird and the bottom one looks alot like some of our EE's. Hopefully someone who knows for sure can answer.

    They both look like Old english game bantam crosses.. Game birds i don't know, i don't really see quail or pheasant in there.

    Old english game bantams, they are pretty tiny in their own right.

    Quote:I'm pretty sure they meant OE games or other game/fighting fowl crosses. I sometimes call them "gamebirds" myself.

    Yeah, i know. Just being a smarty which i occasionally am [​IMG]. They should be called Gamefowl, Old english games, American games, Orientals, etc. Just a Game owners preference though [​IMG].
