    If you need a better picture to help me figure out the breed or what they are mixed let me know. I am very curious to what these guys are.

    Wow, the yellow one is stunning! Something about those small wattles, relatively small comb, and the way his hackle feathers are "wavy" near his head have me thinking he may have some EE somewhere in his background (and thus is EE himself). His slight build makes think that he might have some mediterranean breed in there too...

    The red one looks like a production red rooster, or a hatchery RIR. Where did you get them?

    They both look like backyard mutts to me.

    Thank you for your responses. These roosters were victims of animal abuse and seized by the state. After testing and the required time period, I adopted them into our coop. So although they maybe 'mutts' they are very well mannered and a joy to have around. :)
