Modern Game birds are ornamental birds not known for good egg production or meat. They require better shelter in cold weather and room to exercise to avoid losing their usually fit appearance. These aren’t the type of chickens once used in cockfighting but more of a poultry fancier version. The breed appeared in England after cockfighting was outlawed, developed from Malay and Old English game fowl.
The birds are easily tamed and friendly to humans so them make good pets. They have long legs and a slender build with the earlobes, comb, and wattles usually dubbed or cut off if they are intended for show purposes.
Rooster will weigh eight to nine pounds, hens about five to six pounds. The eggs are white or slightly tinted.
