    They're not a breed. They're mixed breed birds. Something barred in the ancestry, and something red. Other than that, it's hard to narrow down. they likely have different genetics as they have different shank colors.

    Mixed breeds. Very mixed. To the point that no specific breed stands out. That barring does make them quite striking, though. I love playing around with the barring gene. You can get some really neat looks with it.
