    The black one is some kind of golden lace? The orange guy is our prize rooster. I think he is a buff/Rhode island cross.

    The first photo looks like a Silver laced Wyandotte.
    The red one, I can't be sure because of the white ear lobes. I would have said a production red but those lobes throw me.

    They are both crossed with something given the white earlobes on both of them.

    Look at McMurray Hatchery under Red Leghorns and Silver Leghorns.

    Oh! I love your orange roo! He's beautiful! Sorry I have no idea what they could be. Im still trying to figure out if one of my "hens" is a rooster or not.

    Well, not sure if this is at all right, but....

    That first one looks a bit like a Mottled Gold or Silver Duckwing Leghorn?
    And the second, I really don't know. Maybe a cross. He is very good-looking, though. Maybe Buff Leghorn/RIR ??? [​IMG]

    They may be some sorta Leghorn crosses because of the White ears but both have white feet and Leghorns have yellow feet.

    The second definatly not any RIR because of white feet if it were a LeghornXRIR it would still have the yellow feet.

    Pretty roos though, esp. the red/white one.

    The Buff colored one could be a Buff Minorca / White Minorca cross.
