    This is Red, my now passed away Roo. I wanted to know what breed he was, since he was such a sweetheart.
    Thanks!

    I love the look of your 2nd rooster! I do not know what breeds they are but seeing the previous poster saying Welsummer for the first one... my wellies had dark chests (like the link that was posted). Perhaps he was a mixed breed.

    First one looks like a New Hampshire second one looks mixed.

    I was thinking New Hampshire on the first guy. http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry//CGK/NH/BRKNH.html

    The
    second roo reminds me of d'Uccles, but without the beard and leg feathers.... I know I've seen a breed like him before... But I can't for the life of me remember what it was called.

    Welsummer roosters do not look like that.

    He might be a production red, where did you get him from?
    The second is a mix.

    Looks like a production-type New Hampshire to me.


    FYI - Welsummers don't have brown breasts [​IMG]


    The second one is a mutt.

    When talking about the second you referred to him as little guy, depending on how small you're talking he may be a Serama mix

    Most likely two crossbred roosters - the first being particularly attractive and probably long on New Hampshire blood.

    Both from breeders, if you say mutts, mixed with what breed? I'd love to have another of the little roo some day, he was gorgeous.
