Game Bantams


FIG. 39. - Pair of Red Pyle Games

Game Bantams are diminutive representations of the Exhibition Games. The color of plumage markings and shape must correspond with that of the Game which bears its name, the diminutive size being the only distinguishing feature between the two. The cocks average 22 ounces (624 g) in weight, the hens 20 ounces (567 g). The Malay Bantams average 2 ounces (57 g) heavier.
