    They look like mutts to me. That's not a bad thing tho'. This thread will get moved to another forum.

    I wouldn't be so quick to say mutts. The 2nd one is definitely splash in color, so he isn't carrying any other color genes, I would be really surprised if you had a splash mutt! I couldn't tell you what breeds they are or if they meet that breed's standard, but wait for someone with more breed experience before you write them off. Do you have a better pic of the splash guy? It's really hard to tell from the pic, but there are several breeds that come in splash and have single combs. THe only ones I am familiar with are OEG, Orpingtons, and Marans, but I couldn't tell you if he is any of those by the pic you posted. Need a better one. [​IMG] And Niclandia is speaking Latin to me, but sounds like s/he (?) is familiar with the coloring, and that roo is also heterozygous (I do understand that!) so was probably bred purposefully. Hopefully one of the chicken old-time breeders will recognize and chime in. [​IMG]

    Example of a "mutt" splash [​IMG]
    Blue Plymouth Rock + Blue Orpington = Blue, Black, Splash all cross bred aka mutt.

    LOL! I know it's possible, but seems a little unlikely, don't you think? And I didn't say they definitely weren't mutts, just that I wouldn't be so quick to write them off as mutts since they both seem to have deliberate color breeding. I'm not familiar with the breed, if they are purebred at all, but I also have only owned a few breeds of chickens! If you say they're mutts, I'll believe you, and call it case closed! LOL

    These fine roosters are obviously one of a kind individuals and therefore deserve their own distinct classification. Rooster number one looks like to me to be the elusive extremely rare Goldwing Honda [​IMG] Gentlemen, rev your engines! Er-Er-Er-EEEERRRRRR!!!!!!!!!

    Rooster number two is most definately a Swiss Dot Powder Puff, known to be a Romancer of the hen house!! [​IMG] The hens line up for a little "PUFF" from this handsome Romeo!! [​IMG]

    LOL! That means they are very pretty mutts. [​IMG] Sorry!

    If you are looking for birds to show, maybe for your kids? Then check out some bantams at the feed store in the spring. All of the bantams I got last year, except for one, met breed standards. Otherwise, you will have to get birds from a reputable breeder. [​IMG]

    ohhh thanx for the replys guys. i really dont care what they are i love them all the same. i was just curious as to what breed they were because chicken number 1 patrick is so beautiful and perfect a real big strong boy and we just wondered if they were of a showy type (purely for fun). i will try and get some better piccys of them in the light. chicken number 2 priscilla queen of the desert is a huge fluffy boy very pretty sweet and good natured. aahhh well mutts or not i think they are wonderful [​IMG] thanx again
