The Standard Old English Game chicken has been one of the most popular breeds for decades, and we’re proud to offer several varieties of the miniature version. For example, we offer the Red Pyle Old English Bantam, a unique chicken that has beautiful red and white feathers. This breed of Bantams is known for their docile nature, so don’t be surprised if you are able to tame them to sit on your shoulder or arm. They are very easy to handle and care for, and they even make for impressive show birds. You can order baby chicks today, and give us a call if you have questions for a member of the Cackle Hatchery® team.

Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the standard version of the breed, the Red Pyle Old English Game Fowl Chicken.

    We have a single Red Pyle Old English Game Bantam hen. When we got her as a day old chick she was super tiny- about the size of a quarter!! She has grown into the tiniest yet toughest little chicken I have EVER seen!!! She is by far the best and friendliest chicken we have ever owned – and that’s saying a lot!! She has survived a direct hawk attack, foe attack and raccoon attack. She is a great layer and goes broody every 2 months. She teaches all the new flock additions the ropes. And holds her own as the only bantam in a large flock of standard sized chickens. She is super smart and learns very quickly. She loves attention, is a great cuddles, asks to be picked up – and if you don’t pick her up she flys to your shoulder. She is also unusually small for her breed – smaller than a Serema bantam!! Overall she is everything that a good chicken should be.

    Healthy chicks-great quality for the price

    Healthy, lively chicks + one extra-all grew well. A very small amount of black in a few feathers in a couple birds, however, great quality for the price; especially for kids and beginners. Hens did not get broody..

    This was my first time I ordered chicks for a starter. I ordered 5 but they sent 7 and all chicks were alive and well. I’m very pleased with this company. More power to you and success.

    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.

    Cackle Hatchery Personnel

    My order arrived at 3:00 am on friday June 4th and the post office called me promptly. I picked up my chicks at 3:30 am and they were under the heat lamp eating and drinking at 4:00 am June 4th. There were no dead chicks, and they all look very healthy and energetic at this point in time. I really like your color chickens pictures on your website and I believe that your website pictures were my initial motivation to try your company over other hatcheries. Cackle Hatchery is further away from my home distance wise than all the other hatcheries yet cackle has delivered 120% live and healthy birds! I am very happy about my new experience with Cackle Hatchery and will be talking to my friends about it. Wishing you a great year and rising prosperity! Kindest regards
