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 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.”

    I bought these because they are a standard size old English that looks similar to my barred rocks I already have. I free range my barred rocks and have lost quite a few to predation, and after doing quite a bit of online research I decided on old English game chickens for their ability to evade predation more so than heritage breed chickens. As a first time owner of SOEG(Standard Old English Game) chickens I have been very impressed by the ones I received. They are a flighty yet friendly bird. I have had no issue with the roosters being aggressive other than amongst other roosters. Separating roosters is a must if you want them to live. My main predator is my neighbors dog that visits my dog and decides to go after my chickens. He has yet to catch one of my SOEG’s and is about to meet his demise if my neighbor doesn’t take restraining action. Anyway I strongly recommend these little birds. Idk if they’re show quality or not but I do know they’re an excellent free range bird.
