    Found abandoned in a crate on the side of the road. They are about half the size of my mature RIR too and habe feathers on their feet.

    They don't look like any recognizable that I know of. They are more than likely mixes.

    Crossbreds. Very likely Cochin bantam crosses.

    Good job saving them!

    Definitely Crele bantams but hard to tell what other genes they have

    I agree, look like mixes with cochin.
    Poor guys! Definitely need some TLC. I'm glad you rescued them! I mean, who would just abandon roosters like that? When they could have given them away or even swiftly butchered them?
