    Please help I think these are mixes. Does anyone have any ideas? I am just trying to find out more about them so I can advertise them for sale. Also what colors are they?

    These were given to me and I was told they were games. They are about 5 months old now

    They seem to be prevalently Standard Game birds, but it also looks like there is some EE and Australorpe mixed in there.

    I am not a game person, so don't quote me on this because game birds come in a slew of colors. I think the top picture is probably a red pyle OE game mixed with an EE mix of some sort. The rest are really mixed and the leg color is off, making me think australorpe or BJG. The rooster is a really muddled, he looks like he doesn't know whether he wants to be a silver duckwing or a partrige.

    All look to be games to me. First hen is a blue duckwing (grey pullet) of some sort, second is blue wheaten, I got some hens looking like hen 3 when I crossed my Miner blues on some Wingate Brown reds, and yup that last rooster is a "grey" or duckwing that looks like he might have a bit of blue in him as well. Remember that to be sure you have to be the original breeder or trust his/her input as if they are pure American gamefowl, but from the pictures I don't see why they wouldn't be.

    Actually the first hen isn't a Blue Wheaten, nor is the third a Self-Blue. I believe Prariechiken is right on though. The third appears to have some khaki or dun influence from possibly Minor Blue.

    They're American Games alright, as to what type/lines, not sure. They could even be hybrids. The splash hens in front in the second photo aren't normal though.
