    I think the red one is a Lincolnshire buff rooster. But i am not sure about either of them.

    Barnevelder for the first one? Colour and leg colour and comb type are correct. Shame about his comb flopping over!

    The first is a mutt. The second is also a mutt but more specifically might be a Wyandotte x Orpington, note the rose comb, white legs, and color. Probably a GL Wyandotte x Buff Orpington.

    I don't think yours is an Old English Game. The comb is wrong; all Old English Games have straight combs. The ones in the pictures have been dubbed, but if they had their combs, they would be completely upright and not floppy. That being said, your bird is most likely some kind of game cross, but I don't know if it's Old English, American, or some type of Asian game.

    The chicken in the second picture is probably a wyandotte cross of some kind, maybe wyandotte x orpington. He has a rose comb (like a wyandotte), but he has white legs (like an orpington). Pure wyandottes have bright yellow legs, while pure orpingtons have straight combs. The body definitely isn't correct for a pure wyandotte or orp. either.
