    They look to be some game mixes.

    What does the comb look like?

    They look like Brown Leghorns, but their combs are small, maybe Welsummer

    Seramas are tiny, not a Serama

    Definitely not a welsummer.

    I'd say game mixes. The tail looks like a game breed, as does the small comb.

    They are really flighty.. I didn't even think of a game mix.... hmmm... any other ideas?
    Oh and they really don't have a comb much at all... If I can catch one of them again I will take a pic of it....

    If they're young and not laying I say Leghorn. Has the body of a Leghorn.

    If older, I say game mix but not a pure Game. Very few American Games have that much substance and that low of a tail angle going on.
