Introducing the stunning Spangled Old English Bantam Chicks from Valley Hatchery, known for their mesmerizing plumage that captures the essence of ornamental poultry. These miniature versions of the Standard Old English Game chicken feature plumage primarily in dark red, beautifully tipped with white spangles that enlarge as the birds age. The males further impress with their iridescent black tail feathers and striking blue-black coloration on their wings and back.

Valley Hatchery’s Spangled Old English Bantams are part of a diverse range of Old English Bantam Chicken varieties. They are not only a feast for the eyes but also practical additions to any garden, renowned for their foraging skills and ability to control unwanted insects and weeds.

These chickens carry a rich history, descending from ancient cockfighting birds brought to Great Britain by the Romans in the 1st century. Despite the banning of cockfighting in 1849, these birds found their spotlight in poultry shows, judged for their beauty and characteristics rather than their fighting prowess, and were recognized by the American Standard of Perfection in 1925.

Beyond their show-worthy appearance, Spangled Old English Bantams make delightful pets. They lay approximately 100 small brown eggs per year. With hens weighing around 22 ounces and roosters about 24 ounces, they are perfectly sized for backyard enthusiasts. The males, for show purposes, must be dubbed (comb and wattles removed), which adds to their unique and distinguished look.

The Spangled Old English Bantam Chickens from Valley Hatchery are an excellent choice for anyone interested in a blend of beauty, history, and practicality. Whether as a participant in poultry shows or as a unique addition to your backyard flock, these birds are sure to impress and delight.
