    [​IMG]Hello! Our rooster macho has very good genes and 10 of the 20 offsprings are roosters and just like macho. We don't know what breed they are, but oh boy how bad they fight! Can someone please tell us what breed our roosters are?
    Thank you! ! [​IMG]

    My guess is brown leghorn, but not sure because that pattern is common to several kinds of roosters.

    Some guy said they seem to be either kelso or mclean? We have no idea of roosters.

    They look like some type of game rooster. What exact strain, I'm not sure. There are so many strains or types I can't keep track. We do have some good game folks here, maybe they'll come by and help narrow things down.

    Never mind the brown leghorn, they don't have white earlobes.
