Are these Batams? Mutts or a possible breed?

    We were given several birds to start our flock. We have a roo and he is so tiny. He is about 10 months old, and we think he is beautiful to look at. Is he a Batam? Is he a specific breed or just a mutt? I tried to get an up close picture and one that shows his legs and tail.

    The next one is a spotted girl (White with Black spots). She and her "sister" are half the size of my Barred Rock. The spotted girls are not as friendly as the other birds but they are very reliable layers and give me a small to medium white egg almost every day. Again are they Batams? Mutts or possibly a specific breed.

    Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

    the cock looks like a cross between a bantam and largefowl, What crosses?... i don't know. but i can kinda get a Japanese bantam look.. And possibly a game color although that could have come from the japanese bantam or another breed with that color such as a phoenix and other duckwing colors..

    The male's color is gold duckwing. He's probably a bantam mix, game x ? maybe.

    The female is a silver spangled hamburg.
