what are these?

it was really hard to get a good picture of these guys. Any guesses? I think one or both of them are half Australorp, about 7 months old each.

Maybe an Australorp and Leghorn cross?

The one with white earlobes looks like a Leghorn mix. 

Does the other one have a pea comb?

They're definitely mixed breeds. With those white earlobes, the one has some type of Mediterranean class breed (probably Leghorn or perhaps Minorca) in it.

yes, he has a pea comb. I thought leghorn/australorp too, he's really skittish and you should have heard him squawk when I caught him, he thought he was being killed.

You don't get pea combs from an Australorp/Leghorn cross. These boys might have come from the same place, but they don't have the same parentage. 

Pea comb breed possibilities are Dark Cornish, Buckeye, or Easter Egger.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
