    I think they're probably Old English Game. The roo is crele colored, but no clue on the hen.

    There Old English Game Bantams but, the rooster is a mock Crele and not a true Crele.
    He looks to be a Brown Red / Barred cross and a true Crele would be a Black Breasted Red (BB Red)/ barred cross.
    The hen is a Brown Red hen..

    A lot of people think Crele is just colored barring, so they cross whatever colored rooster with barred birds to create what they think is Crele. Obviously this happened here, and you even got the sex linked offspring. (barred male, normal female)

    yep... could just be a barred wheaton or so... but closer to crele...

    the hen is also OEGB, looks like a brassy black hen... but most likely mixed...

    Quote:He's not a Barred Wheaten or a true/ correct Crele.
    A true/ correct Crele is Duck-Wing (Black Breasted Red) based and will have Gold in the Wing Bay (secondary feathers).

    He [the rooster in question] is a Mock (fake) Crele. He has the absents of the gold in his Wing Bay making him a Crow-Wing.

    The hen is not a Brassy Back (not Brassy Black).
    A Brassy Back hens are also Duck-Wing based and should have a almost straw color in her breast.
    The hen in question in a Brown Red hen..
