    I got these from an man saying that they were american game fowl...I have looked and looked and couldnt find any pics relating to them...or their sexes. I think they may be a cross but I dont know with what? If someone could help me, that would be great. To make a long story short...I bought them to rekindle my old hobby from when I was younger, but they are nothing like silkies or cochins... They are aggressive, they beat up my muscovy...but not eachother. If anyone local would like them or would like to trade me something for them, let me know. Thanks.

    They may be crosses of Modern Game or Old English Game. That they're aggressive suggests that maybe they're from fighting stock. Their color is kind of unusual, but I would say they're silver duckwings. Are they standards or bantams?

    Not sure on the breed, but look like you have three game mixes or games grown for the ring types of roos.

    They are Old English game but are crosses of different types. Three roosters and a pullet. In the world of games the yellow neck ones are called Greys. I don't know why. The buckskin or wheaten colored pullet looks like a claret or claret cross. p.s. Where are you located?

    One thing is for sure, The sire was blackbreasted red and the dam was silverduckwing (grey)colored..the pullet is most likely a sibbling to the males..BBR male/SD female produces golden duckwing or red shouldered silver hackled males and red/wheatn females..They look to be about 3/4 game and 1/4 bantam
