When it comes to Old English game fowls, Cackle Hatchery® has several different options to choose from, including the White Standard Old English. This bird has beautiful white feathers, as well as a single comb and a medium/high station. Not only is this one of the oldest breeds in existence, but we have been breeding them for almost 40 years. These chickens live a long time, and overall they are very genetically hardy. We also have a miniature version available. Place your order today and we will ship your chicks in no time, and contact us if you need any more information!
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.”
