    I agree! They look like, (or may be crossed with) Old English Game Bantam blood. Both, are cockerels.

    I have a close up pic but can't seem to load it i will try again in the morning. We have 28 hens and 3 Roo's now so if they are Roo's its ok with us. we are in the country so there are no rules on the number of Roosters we can have. I just hope they will integrate ok all the others have grown up together. we don't have any fighting issues right now.
