    We have 2 Roosters. i want to find a new home for the top rooster. and we want to keep the bottom one. But before we place the rooster, i would like to find out what kind of rooster it is.

    The top guy is almost a year old. We hatched them both last year, from some eggs that my father in law brought over from his farm.

    Thanks!

    Look like Standard Old English Game to me. Possibly SOEG crosses since colors aren't true to form like a BBRed or Goldduckwing. But their stance and body shape sure look like it to me.

    Not easter eggers, but I could see some game blood in them.

    Definitely mixes look like they might have SOEG and Silver Gray Dorking in it.

    Thank You all for your input. My husband was into the chickens and he has been deployed and I need to tighten up on my knowledge of these guys. I am glad to find this site because I am trying to learn how to do all this.
