    They look like Mottled Old English Game Bantams to me.

    Hi i would probably say a Sebright as the shape is similar.
    But they also could possibly be Speckled Sussex .
    Or a cross breed.
    As for your roosters i have got no idea!


    Hope this helps a bit[​IMG]

    Isn't there two types of Old English Game Bantams mottled and speckled?

    they are definitely not sebrights. Sebrights only come in silver and gold laced and have a rose comb. Because they are small and because of the shape, they are not speckled sussex either.

    the female on the far right looks spangled, while the two roos look mottled. The hen in the middle back could be mille fleur, mottlec, or spangled, I cant see her well.
    Edit : Sorry, I also meant to say they are old English Game Bantams.
