    My friend gave me some roosters and I just can not identify them. The big yellow and black one is probably the prettiest one I got, and I have no idea what breed he is. I also have three of the red and blue ones. Any help identifying these two breeds are appreciated.

    The first one looks like a cream legbar cross. I have a few just like it waiting to be processed. The comb looks a bit odd though like it has side sprigs.

    The red one looks to have a very odd (or maybe doctored/dubbed) comb too although neither photo shows a clear view of the combs. Better photos in daylight would probably help.

    Almost certainly both mixed breed. I still think the first one is a cream legbar cross but it's comb is seriously odd (actually they both are) and I haven't got a clue what you would need to cross it with to end up with a comb like that.
    Does the red bird have feathered shanks and feet.... I think I can see some feathering but they might just be caught on it's foot rather than growing from it. If it was a single comb and clean legs and red ear lobes I would say possibly welsummer mix, but with that weird comb and white ear lobes and possibly feathered feet, it's got me stumped. It looks a really odd shape too

    I will be interested to hear what others think.

    What are your plans for them? Hopefully not breeding!
