My girls do a lot of chattering mainly to me if I walk past their pen without stopping. The little cuckoo pullet is more vocal than the cockerals always complaining!

Oh ye the hens really chatter away and nag you almost for some treats. Never known a breed so chatty as the oeg and always pleased to see you.

Mine are fully netted in now as the partridge pullets were little escape artists always sitting on the 8' back fence although they never attempted to fly into the other garden its as though they were teasing me ' he he you can't catch me!' since they have come into lay when I open there gate they hop out and straight back in and have never tried to escape! Just tell me off if I have no mealworms or wheat in my pocket - they so full of character though...

Just got myself a trio of oeg a black red cock and 2 wheaton hens, have been fancying some for a while now and am feeling quite chuffed, chap who I got them off tells me I now need to get myself a partridge cock bird to mix into the breeding.
All new to me but am looking forward to it though I suspect I"ve got a steep learning curve to come but the old guy I got them from seems keen to help me.

We've just got our first trio of old english game bantams as my son wants to start showing. Although I've never really been interested in this breed before I'm now totally hooked! Anyway I don't know anything about the breed so joined a group on facebook and proudly showed a picture of them only to get quite an abrubpt comment off someone saying that they hope I'm from the UK as the legs look yellow!! I have since looked at the American breed and they seem totally different to ours, how can this be when they are the same breed? Can anyone give me some advice please? Will try to add a picture of ours.

I live near durham and have 6 semi ferral OEG birchen taken residence in the garden, 4 hens and 2 cockrels, they roost in my neighbours leylandii hedge. would anyone wish to adopt them as some of the neighbours are not happy with them - no idea how to catch them mind!! - they are in excellent condition despite living in the nearby woods for 6 months prior to coming to our gardens for food this winter.
