    These are purely guesses, since I'm no expert, but the first looks like a blue Andalusian and the second looks like some sort of game. They're pretty!

    how tall is the 2nd one? it reminds me of a malay, shamo, or asel (sp of all 3 of those) so at least a mix at the most of some sort of game. cant really help with the 1st on but it looks like it could a blue aldesion(sp) looks like he might have leg mites with the way his legs look to

    I suspect that these may be mixed breeds. The first one looks like it could be a dark Blue Andalusian, but that comb is throwing me off. Is it a regular straight comb or a large rose comb? Andalusians have straight combs.

    wow you guys know your poultry lol @hdowden i'm not exactly sure how tall the second one is but he is taller than the first by 1 or 2 inches (maybe a little more) but i'll definitley look into the leg mites. how would you get rid of leg mites if your rooster have them? oh and thx for the tips guys.

    I agree that the first one looks like a blue Rosecomb and the second looks like a game type of some sort. It would be easier to tell if we had a side shot of him standing naturally. I see him in the back of the first pic but it's really hard to tell much from that.

    Oooo, yeah, those are Rosecombs. Thanks for the closer pics, that really helps being able to see the comb.

    I'd say you have a black, a splash, a silver duckwing, and a gold-laced one with very bad lacing.
