    Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what these six roosters might be, they are all mix/crosses . . .

    We have three possible dads, one is a white (and what I think is a) game cross, one is a Welsummer cross, and the other is a silver penciled wyandotte cross, and then the hen posibilities are endless.
    These six will all be sold, but I'm just wondering.

    My crazy guesses
    1) Looks like an Iowa Blue Rooster. Possibly has the Silver Penciled Roo for a father.
    2) Got some B.B Red, or Partridge in him. He looks part game. Maybe White Game Rooster X Partridge Standard Hen
    3) I have a rooster that looks just like him. He is a Light Brahma X Junglefowl. So my guess would be a Columbian colored hen X White Gamefowl
    4) No clue but possibly a Black Australorp, or Jersey Giant mother.
    5 and 6) look like Buff Orpington crosses.

    Thank you for the guesses [​IMG] I'm still learning all the different breeds.
    For #3, we do have some white hens with some slight black markings like his, not as much black though, so I would guess one of those is his mom. We have two small black hens that could be #4's mom.
    I think I have pics of the possible dads . . . yep here are some. . .
    Here is a picture of the Wyandotte Roo, he's my favorite, I hatched and raised him myself . . .

    Here is the suspected Welsummer Roo . . .

    And what we think is the Game cross Roo . . .

    Of course now I may have just opened up a "whats the dad" discussion, lol.

    Well- looks like you have some wellie hens. That one roo almost looks like purebred welsummer. Maybe he needsto fill out & finish getting adult colors.

    We did have a pure welsummer rooster, he would be the dad of the welsummer roo that may have fathered the six.
    And since we have some welsummer hens, that roo could be full or maybe 3/4 welsummer. Thats an old picture of that roo, he wasnt a year old yet, and he's now a year and a half
