    Look to be some breed of Game. Old English or American most likely. A Black Breasted Red "blk&red" and a Silver Duckwing "blk&wht". The BB Red has an odd comb so it could be a cross but I don't think so. Just a genetic fluke I think.

    Thanks! I know they are the same age but the silver wing is alot smaller then the other birds. Is that normal?

    Yes, no two birds mature at the same rate. Even siblings can mature faster or slower than each other.

    They get along great. I seem to have a really happy flock. They really dont squabble much but they are still young. I realize that may change in time.

    I had tee roos together and going to cull 2 but they got out of there little pens so we ha to put 3 roos together and 2 day before we culled the 2 they started fighting and would just look at each other wrong and they would start fighting so you got to keep an eye out mine started to do that little later than most roos but when they did......you would have to sepparate them with a stick (they started to fight at 8 months and started to crow then to)

    the little silver duckwing looks like a game breed or some kind of bantam and the other one iwould say is a welsumer but the comb looks weird can you take a close pic of his comb
