Old English Game Bantams

"Nigel," a Blue/Red OEG bantam

For lots of images of the different varieties of this breed, stop by the pages of the Northwest Old English Game Bantam Club.

If you are involved with these birds, here's a book you really should know about:
Old English Game Bantams as Bred and Shown in the United States by F. P. Jeffrey and William Richardson, 1995 (126 pp., Old English Game Bantam Club of America, 316 Sullivan Rd., Simpsonville, SC 29680, 864-299-0901, e-mail: Syg4138@aol.com). If you are breeding or showing OEG bantams, this book is a must! Chapters discuss their history, standards, judging, conditioning, principles of breeding and genetics of OEG bantams, and all the various color varieties, including 48 color photos of those.

From the UK we have a new book: Old English Game Colour Guide by Dr. J. Batty. Totally filled with pictures of OEGs, both large and bantam, there's no logic to the order of things that I can see, but if you want pictures of many colors of OEG, this is the book for you. It is available from Beech Publishing.

It should be noted that the body styles of US and UK OEG bantams differ noticeably. Here's a page with UK OEG bantams.
