    I am looking to ad a rooster to my flock. Will you please let me know what type of rooster you believe these two birds to be. I believe one to be an Asil, but would appreciate other opinions.

    I have no idea what breed either one of them is and therefore can't make a recommendation.

    But I just wanted to say that I like the fat, fluffy one! He is a cutie!

    They both look like mixed breeds to me. The first bird is probably some sort of gamebird mix, and the other bird likely has some Wyandotte in him.

    This. No Asil, but the first is gamey looking. the second could have Wyandotte and Orpington, something like that. Agree temperament is by far the best criteria for a backyard flock.
