- Black Breasted Red Jungle Fowl Standard Old English
Cackle Hatchery® offers the Black Breasted Red Jungle Fowl Old English game fowl, a unique poultry breed with a straight comb, blue/green leg color and a medium/high station. This is just one of the 18 varieties that we have been developing for decades, and we are happy to tell you that there are several reasons why you would want to have these chickens on your property. Not only are they known for their gameness, but the hens make great brooding mothers.

You can check your local or state poultry association/clubs for upcoming shows and check out your state fair poultry show dates.

Great!! Review by Kylie
I ordered 5 birds, and we got them all alive plus two extra!! All 7 chicks are adults now and beautiful feathers. They are mean birds, but very beautiful. They are all a healthy size, too! We ended up with three roosters and 4 hens. (Posted on 11/25/2019)

Happy with these after 1 year+ Review by Oldhat
I started over with my free range flock and wanted "gamier" birds but not too gamey where you couldn't turn your back on a rooster. Rooster of this group has not even challenged me in the daily ritual of letting him and 10 hens out each morning or putting them up in the eve. Hens are 50/50, some skittish while others don't mind eating right out of my hand (rooster always eats out of my hand). If you live in the middle of 600 acres of woods like I do and like to free range then you can't go wrong here. Oh and if you forget to put them up/coop door shuts accidently then no worries, they'll find a roost 6-10 ft off the ground close to the coop and stay there for the night. Also I have 2 broody hens from the batch sitting on eggs right now. Very happy with this purchase from a free range perspective. (Posted on 5/25/2018)
