    Unfortunately this photo is not going to be sufficient to begin to identify the bird's breed. You will need to take a clear photo that shows the bird in natural lighting and in a natural, standing position so that the entire bird (legs included) is visible -- a nice side profile photo.

    They're mixed breed birds. Looks like some thing red mixed with something black, and I wouldn't rule out some game or something else light bodied....but I don't think those big ol combs come from any game blood.
