Thank You Sncerely "Wineglass",
( and to be fair, the two other chaps, that have offered me a start up.....you know who you are)

I will certainly keep it in mind, and should I ever "get out of suburbia", hopefully sooner rather than later, I would love to opportunity to get my feet wet with some of these History Laden, Classy Fowl.....
Thanks Chaps.
All The Best.

The pictures below of the birds from the 1990's are actually my Pop's, of which I have taken over breeding the lines. In actual fact some of the pictures shown are of large fowl.

Manzo.
Your bantam cock is just that, and far from the Oxford type fowl.
Your chick is called a spangle.
The hen with chicks is a partridge hen not a wheaton.
This is a wheaton hen.

Are you interested in swapping to Oxford OEG?
Other wise the title of this thread suggests that these OEG bantams has been placed in the wrong thread.
