    I ordered a wonderful little crele OEGB cockerel and he turned out wonderful. His comb showed at 2 weeks! He has a stellar personality and loves to be held. He isn’t aggressive at all and tolerates multiple roosters in my mixed bantam flock. He also crowed at 6 weeks and isn’t loud at all. A truly wonderful little chicken!

    I love my two little game hens. Mind you I keep chickens more as pets than for the eggs. Which is good cause these girls lay only every few days. That being said, they are far and away my favorite in my flock. Very curious, very friendly birds. Mine are 9 months old and I’m not sure I’ve ever heard a peep out of them. They follow you around. They are also great flyers and quite fast, so keep that in mind and clip them if necessary. Mine are herded or easily picked up when needed.

    Crele OEGB Very Friendly!

    PURCHASED 10 SR, received 10 females & 2 males. A tad timid but very friendly and will eat out of hand. Males are protective but not aggressive. Great pet quality, highly recommend for small egg laying pets. They consume very very little feed. Lay a couple eggs a week. More docile than I expected,

    Great little birds, customer service not as great

    Last May I ordered 15 straight run Crele Old English Game Bantams. I received 17 happy, healthy chicks and raised every single one. They thrived from day one and were a total pleasure–friendly and active from the start. My only problem is the fact that of the 17, 14 were roosters! I realize I ordered straight run, but this is pretty much an autosexing breed. I guess someone ordered pullets the same week and I got the leftover roosters. Fortunately, I was able to place all the extra roosters and I now have a beautiful rooster and three little hens.

    Very Sweet Bantams

    Creles are very sweet bantams. My rooster & girls let me hold them with no anxiety. This breed of rooster doesn’t crow very loud; he makes for a good neighbor.

    Thank You

    I want to thank you for my bantam old english chickens. I have never had chicks that love me so much. I treat them as though they are my children. They like to be held and kissed. I really love them. Thanks again. If I need more I will order from you folks again.

    I recently received my order of Old English Game Bantams. The order consisted of four varieties totaling 36 chicks. They all arrived in excellent condition, perfectly strong and healthy. In a short time they were busy eating, drinking and scampering around. I am really pleased with them! A very satisfied customer.
