Cackle Hatchery® offers the Black Breasted Brown Red Old English game fowl, a unique poultry breed that is notable for its black leg color, straight comb, and 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. For more details about this variety, or any of the other Standard Old English game fowls we offer, contact us today!

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.”

    Not Sexed

    Oh so sorry. Unfortunately, we don’t sex this breed and our shippers do have any idea of the sex of the bird when they put them in the box to ship.

  3. Hippychick

    Too many Roosters

    I was only supposed to get maybe one Rooster at the most but I think I got all Roosters.
