    I am working with 9 handsome roosters at my local animal shelter. They were brought in from running loose, and I would like to know breeds so I can tell people who hopefully adopt them. (They also need names if anyone has any ideas!)

    To me they look like Old English Game Bantams or a mixed breeds that have a lot of OEGB in them.

    Edited to add

    I would give them names of the Knights of the round table.

    They are likely all game breed mixes.

    They all look like game bird mixes to me.

    All of them appear to be gamebird mixes.

    They're all mixed breeds, note the different leg colors and shapes. I agree they all have some game blood.
