    To me, they all look like mixes. For sure, the first bird is a mix, probably with Silkie.

    The fluffy one looks like a Silkie mix. The other two appear to be gamebird mixes. All are handsome roosters!

    How big is the top guy? Short legs make me think Dorking, maybe Dorking x Brahma or Dorking x Wyandotte... does he have feathered shanks?

    Dorkings also have five toes, but it looks like a cross so maybe only part Dorking.


    As for the others they look like welsummers to me, and very good specimens at that.

    Agree the first bird has some silkie a ways back in the gene pool.

    I also think the other birds are mixes. They have blue breasts, not black, so that rules out Welsummer.
