    The first one looks like a White Rock but White Rock's don't have pink shanks.
    The last one looks like the common Easter Egger, though since he's a roo, there's going to be no Easter eggs.

    1st one looks like a Splash Orpington mix (pinkish blue legs, splash coloring, single comb), 2nd one looks like a Birchin and Black Copper Marans mix (single comb, coloring, pink and feathered legs), 3rd Rooster looks like a Light Brahma and EE mix (pea comb, coloring, yellow legs, beard/muffs, coloring). Good looking guys [​IMG]

    They all look like mixes to me. If you have no idea the origin, it is very likely they are just very pretty boys resulting from whomever happened to be rooming together at the time.

    It would help to know what color eggs their female offspring lay.

    They are all gorgeous but I agree with everyone that they are all definite mixes. And I would be proud of it if i had them!
