Welcome to the enchanting world of Splash Old English Bantam Chicks at Valley Hatchery, where each feathered friend is a unique masterpiece! Hailing from Europe, these whimsical birds are a living canvas, each adorned with a distinctive pattern of white or blue-gray plumage, playfully splashed with dark blue or black streaks and spots. No two Splash Old English Bantams are exactly alike, making each one a special addition to your flock.

These bantams are not just a treat for the eyes; they’re a lesson in genetics too! If you fancy playing the role of a feathery artist, breeding Splash to Splash results in paler plumage over generations. But, mix it up by breeding Splash to Blue, and voila! You get a vibrant flock with 50% Splash and 50% Blue chickens, adding a spectrum of color to your backyard.

But let’s dive a bit into their heritage. The Splash Old English Bantam is a descendant of the Old English Game, a breed with a history as colorful as their feathers. Originating from ancient cockfighting birds brought to Great Britain by the Romans in the 1st century, these chickens have evolved from their gladiatorial past to become stars of the poultry show world, celebrated for their beauty and individuality.

Don’t let their showy appearance fool you; these bantams are as practical as they are pretty. With a modest requirement for space and feed, they are perfect for any backyard setting. Laying approximately 100 small brown eggs a year, these hens, weighing around 22 ounces, and roosters, about 24 ounces, are not only charming but also productive.

And for those who enjoy the thrill of poultry shows, the males of this breed, ready for their moment in the spotlight, must be dubbed (comb and wattles removed) to enhance their dashing looks.

At Valley Hatchery, our Splash Old English Bantam Chicks are more than just chickens; they’re feathered jewels, each with its own unique story and splendor. They’re perfect for anyone looking to add a touch of whimsy and a splash of color to their life. Adopt one of these speckled beauties and watch as they transform your coop into a gallery of living art!
