Ever so slightly off topic - every morning for a good 8 years (early to mid 90's) I sat behind a guy on the train that was an OEG nut. Red headed bearded older jolly gentleman hailing fron Beaudesert/Boonah way and worked for Queensland rail. In all that time, even though we often discussed fowl, I never got his name. Can anybody help??

Gee, the Stig has done it again...
These two fowls I looked at the pics without readng the caption.....I just assumed they were large/standard oEG////Buggered me right up to see they are Miniatures.......
How long have you been workng on those Stig?
Has anyone else joined forces, to help out breeding them up?.....are there many about atm?.....
The Little Twerps look sensational to me, esp. the Blue Red......but the Blk reds "Power" is exciting to see in a Mini.
Good Work Champ! and good luck in the future with them.

Yes they are very nice little fellows,

All Oxford miniatures are much the same Texas. Thats because they are all bred from large fowl, there is no bantam blood in them at all..just bred down over the years, as good miniatures should be.......And most handle as good as they look....

If your ever interested in some, I, or some of the other lads on here would make sure you got a nice pair or trio to get you going....

No bantam blood at all, that is a good effort in breeding. Well done.

Pegawl do you agree with this statement as I have heard conflicting thoughts on this?
