    I am not familiar with these chickens, hopefully someone from Australia will see this and know. Some breeds you have in Australia we don't have here.

    Modern Game tend to be much more taller and lanky.
    (not my pictures)

    At first I thought OEGBsbut they don't have the right leg color

    Remember, we are looking down on these birds, not directly at them. They have the tight feathering of a game breed, the comb on the male needs to be dubbed as well as the wattles, but other than that they have the characteristics of the MGB.

    Birchen game in appearance for sure, but what about the comb, wattle, and facial color? Do you think that is just a photographic anomaly? Urucubaca, are their combs really that dark?

    Well, the females are supposed to have a more mulberry color to their faces than the males.
