    I agree with california fowl, I learned this lesson the hard way. I got 6 stags out of a brood from Cackle and I had to cull all but one. They are not game and not bred to be game. It wasn't a total loss though as the one I did not cull is a nice Brown Red and he is very game. I was also able to get four very nice BR OEG pullets out of that order that I plan to cross with some Kelso and Grey that I have coming.

    The Brown Red Pullets that I do have are very game, good station, and have some lemon hackle in them which I would like to have. I am going to try and breed them back after one brood with some Kelso. Also, like I said, the stag it also very game and has done good sparring with some of my cocks and other stags. That combined with the fact he is only 8 months old lends me to believe he might be alright. I backed into the OEGs before I knew anything about Americans.
