    I have 2 beautiful 1 year old roosters. I raised them from 1 day old chicks that a friend gave me, but I have no idea what kind of chicken they are. So if anyone could help me figure out their breed that would be great!
    ( This first big handsome guy is Eggbert his cob is normally a bit bigger then it is right now. Despite our best efforts he ended up getting some frost bite this last winter and he is still recovering from it)

If anyone has any experience with finding homes for my 2 boys I would love any help I can get. Thanks!

    I am pretty sure that Moa (Second rooster) is an Ester Egger, but I have no idea about Eggbert (First rooster). I have been told in the past that Eggbert might be a mix, but that was when he was 7 weeks old so the were not sure.

    They are both crossbreds. No way to know exactly what mix they are.

    Egbert is a mixed breed and Moa is an Easter Egger.

    The first one is a mix of mixes, he might have polish or silkie in him somewhere. The second one is an Easter egger.
