OL D E N G L I SH C REL E B A N TA M C OCK E REL ORIGIN Class: All Other Standard Breeds (Old English Games) England STANDARD WEIGHTS Cock Cockerel 24 oz. 22 oz. Hen Pullet 22 oz. 20 oz. FEATHER PATTERN Feathers broad and strong, tail well spread and carried at a 45-degree angle; hard, glossy, firm plumage overall. The Game fowl has from time immemorial stood as a symbol of courage and indomitable spirit. Game birds are now bred for exhibition and are a very competitive category at the poultry shows.
Almost every breeder or judge speaks of the book in such exalted terms. The Standard exhaustively discusses every possible nuance of a show chicken, and there is little to no ambiguity between its covers. A poultry judge exercises a certain degree of latitude in scoring, for instance, feather condition — a leeway of three to four points on that hundredpoint scale. But a number of automatic disqualifications apply to other traits. An example: toe count. Almost all chickens possess four toes on each foot.
They’re appreciated for their proud and stylish bearing as well as their quality of feather, their lustrous colors, and their perfection of comb and lobe. They’re familiar on the show circuit; some variety has been included in every Standard of Perfection since the first, in 1874 . The Blue Rose Comb is a somewhat more recent addition to poultry fancy. COLORS The variety’s name derives from the comb, which is rose. The head is a glossy black. Back, saddle, wings, and tail are an even shade of clear, bluish slate, with lacing of black.
