The Old English Pheasant Fowl is a rare breed of chicken originating in England. Despite its name, it is not a species of pheasant, and is so named based merely on appearance. Mostly concentrated around Yorkshire and Lancashire, it was named and a breed club was formed in 1914. They are thought by some to be one of the precursors of the Hamburgh breed. They have rose-type combs and white earlobes. Their plumage is a mahogany hue with darker lacing around the edges. It is a hardy bird that does well in free range conditions as a table bird and a layer of white eggs. In the 21st century, the Old English Pheasant Fowl is extremely rare. It is listed as "at risk" in the 2014 watch list of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.
