- Red Pyle Old English Game Bantam
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.

Healthy chicks-great quality for the price Review by CM
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.. (Posted on 4/25/2019)

Thank You Review by Joseph January 2016
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. (Posted on 1/7/2016)
Cackle Hatchery Personnel Review by David New Mexico June 2010
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 (Posted on 11/16/2015)
