I recently purchased some old english game bantam chickens that are super wild and want them more docile. How can I achieve this?

Try throwing some feed on the ground a little away from you. Do this for a while and try to get them to come closer to you. Are they in a pen? You could sit in the pen and throw the feed so they get used to your presence. When they eventually start getting close enough to where you could reach out and touch them put some feed in your hand and see if they will eat out of it. Don’t try and grab them or they’ll freak out. Once they are eating from your hand try to pet them on their chest, not on their backs or they’ll think something is trying to get them from behind. Eventually they will let you pet them and even hold them. The ability to tame a chicken really depends on the breed. For example, game chickens are usually a lot harder to tame than cochin chickens. It’s not impossible, just a little harder to accomplish. Just be patient and they will calm down.
