Description

Like many of its sister Old English breeds, the Black Old English Standard is one of the oldest breeds of chickens, with generations going back to Victorian England. Old English breeds are most noted for their extraordinary appearance, longevity and good health. These attributes, with alertness and energy that allows them to avoid predators, makes them an ideal backyard chicken. Cackle Hatchery® has bred Black Old English Standard chickens for nearly 40 years, selecting the best physical attributes, health and personality characteristics in every new generation to ensure this breed continues to excel.

NOTE: The Old English is photographed with a 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.”

Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the miniature version of the breed (bantam), the Black Old English Game Bantam Chicken

Newbie Note: There are some white feathers in their 1st and 2nd stage feathering which is normal but by the 6th month they are solid black feathers.
