    My Wife brought these home a few months ago, I think they maybe english game, but not sure, may be a mix, any ideas. I have 4, and think 2 roo's and 2 hens. The legs are a grayish blue.

    Don't look like either Old English Game or Modern Game. How old are they? It does look like you might be right on the sexes but hard to tell from the pics. I would venture to guess that they are mutts.

    They aren't very big, about 3/4 the size of my 6 week old RIR. I think they were born in August, so I don't see them getting to much bigger.

    If they aren't already all grown, then they are probably mutts.

    They kind of look like my OEGB chickens, with the 'pointy' tails. I don't recognize the color though, kind of mille fleurish ? I would say mutts [​IMG]

    They look a bit like my Nankin bantams and some of my modern game girls. Just checked the Storey's Illustrated Guide to Poultry and there are two pages of descriptions for colors of OEGBs.
