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.”

    Noticed a typo in my prior review. I received 16 cockerels, not 13: sorry.

  2. postwill

    I ordered 35 Old English Games: 15 Black Breasted Brown Reds, 10 Blacks & 10 silver Duck Wings.. I receives a total of 40 chicks. One Silver Duck Wing dies in transit but that still left me with the 10 I ordered. That was my only loss.
    The chicks have grown well & I was able to move them out of the brooders recently & was able to sex them. I can’t complain at all. Of my 39 birds I have 23 pullets & 13 cockerels. The Duck Wings were especially successful I have 7 pullets & 3 cockerels in them.
    I am an American Poultry Association General Licensed Judge & I have seen Cackle Games in several shows I have judges & have always been impressed with them That prompted my order. Games are a favorite of mine. Other Judges are only too happy to let me judge the AOSB class, always.
    I have had some nice games in the past & am anxious to see how these develop & do in shows. So far they look great!

    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.

    Too many Roosters

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