    This is my only standard roo, Pepe`
    I'm thinking he's a mix of something, not sure.

    This is Roadrunner,lol. He's got legs for days & he's a bantam.

    Thanks, Miriam

    What handsome fellows! They really are good looking. I think the coloring on the first one might be crele or part crele? I don't know which breeds carry that color/pattern, but I'm referring to the hackle/neck feathers.

    That first handome boy really looks like a Wyandotte mixed with something. He certainly has the Wyandotte head and comb. The long legged boy is a Modern Game Bantam.

    The first one - Could it be Barred rock mixed with a Partridge rock??? I have a rooster from both of these breeds and the colors of that rooster just imitate them almost perfectly.

    The second one - I have no clue.. but cute and perfect name for him!!! [​IMG]

    Hmmmm didnt pay attention to the comb Cyn... guess I should start huh LOL

    Well thanks so much yall.
    Pepe` I knew was some kind of mix, he's a wonderful roo almost 4 yrs old now.
    When Roadrunner started growing those long legs I thought it was some genetic problem,lol. Atleast he has more luck with the bigger hens. [​IMG]
