    Hard to tell from the picture. Are they bantam or standard size? Did he have white earlobes?
    I'm guessing brown Leghorn without knowing any additional info. There are a LOT of breeds with that color.

    They look like light brown leghorn bantams - any rooster with moxy will challenge another rooster, not only games.

    I think that he is a Black Breasted Red Old English Game. Leghorns would have yellow legs; he has whitish ones.

    So did he have white earlobes? If not, then I think he was a Black Breasted Red Old English Game. The body coloring, body type, and leg coloring (from the photo at least, it looks like he had white legs; leghorns have yellow) fit that breed/variety. But if he had white earlobes, then he was most likely a Light-Brown Leghorn.
