Old English Game
The Old English Game fowl descends directly from a fighting breed known as the Pit Game. Though cockfighting is no longer allowed in England, this breed's personality hasn't changed. They tend to be noisy, active, intolerant of confinement, and roosters absolutely cannot be kept together - they'll fight to the death! Hens are aggressive too, and shouldn't be kept alongside more docile breeds. Despite this, they're a beautiful breed for the experienced poultry keeper and the hens are reliable setters/brooders.
