    Sounds like you already know what they are. What is it exactly your wanting to know?

    Yes. Here in NW MO they'd be $3-$5 roosters. Can very greatly in other areas though.

    I'm in southern Oregon. Last fall I had a bunch of silkie/cochin mix cockerels. Literally could not give them away. Butchered a few, but not worth the time IMO. Fed them to the pigs instead.

    Since they are unusual colored can they be shown in a poultry show

    I know they are cross breeds but is there a common name or group for these birds.

    Yep. common name is Barnyard Mix, or Mutts, or Mongrels. They're just mixed breed birds. Not really valuable, and not show-able.
