    With those long legs, I'd guess some kind of game bird cross.

    games are a class of breeds. they are birds used for, or derived of birds used for fighting and are generally closer than most to thier wild ancestors. today many are popular at shows.
    your roosters' color is crele. maybe old english crossed with an asian game fo some sort? malay?

    I believe that these are someone's genetic project to get Creole Modern Game birds. I see Old English Creole coloration in the feathering and legs. And the stance is pure Modern Game.

    It's either that or a Creole colored stork that has been previously undiscovered [​IMG]
