I won 3 of these at an auction for $1 each.
The cage said:

2010 Hatches
-Archangel cross
-Egyptian Swift cross
-Modena cross (Im pretty sure I know which one this is, but I dont know what its crossed with)

None of these appear to have Swift in them, however, the first two both look like Archangel crosses, and the third look like modena/roller cross

Also, the two rollers are Light Almond and Yellow (recessive?)

BTW, they are Birmingham Rollers

The first two are probably swift x archangels since bronze is present in both breeds. Like Bubba said, they don't look very Swift-ish, but it is possible. And you're right about the modena cross. Looks like he's going through a rough moult!

And everyone else is right about the rollers - almond and recessive yellow. Very pretty birds!

I was leaning towards Birmingham Rollers, but wasnt 100% sure.
I love their coloring as well

They were sold to me as a pair, but they are both still pretty young (one still squeaks)

As for the crosses, I didnt see Swift in them either(could only go by what I read on the internet) , but that was what the cage card said. But I knew which one was the modena cross (didnt know what it was crossed with though) As for looking rough, the modena cross had a rough start with me. A stray cat got ahold of him through the bars of a cage whilke I was waiting for the auction to get over.
