Valley Hatchery proudly presents the Self Blue Old English Bantam Chicks, an enchanting variety recognized by the American Standard of Perfection in 1965. These chickens, known for their captivating soft gray, also referred to as lavender plumage, are a true spectacle in the world of poultry.

Originating from the Old English Game, a breed with roots tracing back to ancient cockfighting birds introduced to Great Britain by the Romans in the 1st century, these chickens have a storied past. After the ban of cockfighting in 1849, the focus shifted to poultry shows, where breeds like the Self Blue Old English Game Bantam were celebrated for their aesthetic qualities rather than their fighting prowess.

In addition to their historical significance, these bantams are also prized for their practical qualities. They are excellent foragers, adept at keeping gardens free of unwanted insects and weeds. Not only do they require minimal space and feed, but they are also easily tamable, making them an ideal choice for both experienced and novice poultry enthusiasts.

The Self Blue Old English Bantams lay about 100 small brown eggs annually, with hens weighing approximately 22 ounces and roosters around 24 ounces. These chickens are not only hardy and dependable but also make protective mothers, ensuring the safety and well-being of their chicks.

Valley Hatchery’s range of Old English Bantam Chicken varieties, including the Self Blue, is a testament to their dedication to providing top-quality poultry. Whether you’re looking to add a unique touch to your backyard flock or seeking a show-worthy bird, the Self Blue Old English Bantam Chickens, with their stunning gray plumage, are a perfect choice. Embrace the beauty and practicality of these charming chickens and add a splash of historical elegance to your flock!
