    I was just given these roosters about an hour ago and the man didn't know what breed they are. I have 2 other roosters so I'd like to know what they could mixed with so I can sell them for the proper amount. One has, I think, a pea comb and the other has what looks like a buttercup comb. They look like the same breeds except for their combs. Also any guesses on age? I have no clue. The 1st and 3rd pictures are the same one and the 2nd and 4th are the other. They're not really white but more of a yellow color.

    Yes. I agree. They are handsome. These are my 1st adult roosters so I was shocked how big they are. You wouldn't happen to have a guess at the age would you?

    At best I would say he's a Red Sex link. (although they could be First Generation Red Pyle but less likely)
    Both roosters have Pea Combs. I would be willing to bet that the Male used in this cross was a Buckeye as for the Female used,,, it could have been any number of "Silver" based breeds.

    Ok. I didn't get a good look at their combs until a little while ago but from a distance the one's looked like a buttercup. Thanks

    Another option is a super blue egg layer (blue egg layer x leghorn). Do they both have yellow legs? They look a lot like the roo we have.
