The Old English Game is the progenitor of the Old English Bantam Chicken. The word bantam means small, or miniature. When England outlawed cockfighting in 1835, the bantam was developed. Since that time, they have been bred specifically for exhibition. The bantam became popular in the USA after it became a standard breed in 1925.
The APA Standard of Perfection accepts twenty-four varieties of bantam, with several others in development. These varieties include but aren't limited to: birchen, black, blue, blue golden duckwing, brassy back, brown-red, buff, cuckoo, lemon blue, golden laced, silver quill, red, and white.
**Any blue variety ordered from Purely Poultry may include chicks with black, blue, or splash plumage patterns.**
