Cackle Hatchery is proud to introduce the Cuckoo Standard Old English, just one of the many types of Standard Old English game fowls we have available. We’ve been breeding these chickens for almost 40 years, and we’ve perfected the development process. This specific variety, sold as baby chicks only, is notable for its pearl to blue leg color, as well as its single comb. You can expect these chickens to be very genetically hardy, and they are well known for their gameness. Place your order today, and make sure you give us a call if you have any questions! This is an excellent choice for someone to have a free range flock of poultry (1 male and 10 hens). This flock will have a better chance of evading predators than most other poultry breeds. The hens make good brooding mothers for sitting on the eggs and hatching the baby chicks and raising them.
NOTE: The Old English are photographed with comb, ear lobes, and wattles dubbed (cut off). Entering a poultry show with non-dubbed males of the Old English breed is a disqualification. You can check your local or state poultry association/clubs for upcoming shows and check out your state fair poultry show dates. You would compete for ribbons with other breeds that are listed in the class “All other Standard Breeds."
