    I started to reply a few minutes ago with barred rock or cuckoo maran. But then when I looked at them, they aren't nearly as fluffy and filled out as my barred rock. I was trying to think of other barred breeds - but I am just not that familiar with all the different breeds and their SOP. It'll be interesting to see what others say.

    I think they are crosses (mutts) my favorite breed. The appear to have pea combs so that rules our BRs. Also the face (wattles and heavy brow indicate an Asiatic breed. They also have a very gamey stance. My guess is BR X Game Fowl.
  6. actually (we need a better pic) but it does look like they have single combs, look at the one looking at the camera

    cold you get another pic?
