    They look like mixed breeds.

    the one on the table is a game rooster. All this is new to me but there seems to be lots of pics on google of birds very very similar but don't know how to figure out what exactly they are.

    [​IMG] I'm thinking this is a Old English bantam judging his size by the jar of peanut butter. I will know tomorrow and update.

    Both look like mixed breeds to me. The second one probably has some gamebird in him, but his comb isn't the right type for a purebred Old English Game.

    [​IMG]what comb should he have? His size, color are spot on Old English Bantams from what I've researched.

    An Old English Game should have a single comb, with well-defined spikes. Your bird appears to have a pea comb.
