    I was at the Creation Museum and at their petting zoo there were these 3 roosters on a fence and they all let me just come over and pick them up!! I'm in love!! I know they are bantams and I was guessing old English game maybe?? But I thought game chickens meant fighting cocks hence the word "game"? So why did these Roos get along with each other?

    Just because their games doesn't mean they can't get along.Not all game fighters are aggressive and even those whom are,can still live in pens with others (sometimes).They don't look like games to me.From what I have seen and been told games are usually skinnier and more cocky looking,and have that reddish,orange,yellow colors and black chests.

    Hm, ok, back to seeing if someone knows what bantam breed he is. They were just so stinking friendly and good around other males, I'd love to have some one day[​IMG]
