Step right up to Valley Hatchery for a feathery spectacle like no other – the Red Pyle Old English Bantam Chicks! These vibrant birds are the descendants of the ancient cockfighting breeds that were the toast of Great Britain since the Romans introduced them in the 1st century. After cockfighting bowed out in 1849, these feathered beauties took to the stage in poultry shows, strutting their stuff in categories far beyond their ancestral fighting skills.
Now, let’s talk colors – the Red Pyle Old English Bantams are nothing short of a living, clucking rainbow. With plumage that’s a fiesta of white, bright orange, and deep red, they’re like the sunsets of your backyard. Recognized by the Standard of Perfection in 1946, these chickens aren’t just about looks; they’re a bundle of personality too – alert, upright, and brimming with confidence.
But wait, there’s more! Weighing in at a dainty 22 ounces for hens and a robust 24 ounces for roosters, these chickens are the perfect size for any coop. They’re like the pocket-sized superheroes of the chicken world, laying about 100 small brown eggs a year. And talk about being easy to handle – these birds are so docile, even a chicken novice would feel like a pro.
At Valley Hatchery, our Red Pyle Old English Bantams are part of an all-star lineup that includes the likes of Black Breasted Red, Brassy Back, and many more. Each variety is a testament to our dedication to quality and diversity in poultry. And let’s not forget, these bantams are fantastic foragers – they’ll keep your garden pest-free and your soul happy.
