    A slightly off color Barred Rock or a mix is my guess.

    I agree with Bantamlover21's guesses.

    They're all mixed breed birds. The first one has something barred in the ancestry, but I honestly don't think he's a first generation mix of something purebred barred. He's way lighter and more diluted looking than my first generation barred mixes.

    Second bird--something red mixed with something white. Not sure where the pea comb comes from?

    Third bird I would guess has some Orpington in the background, with the size and white legs. But he also looks to have a pea comb?
     
  9. That first rooster is beautiful!

    These guys should be able to defend the hens! I figured the first one is a black sex link rooster
