    Look like Easter Egger cockerels to me because of the very broad pea combs, but the little nub on the legs is on both sexes. Males dont get spurs till they are about 7-9 months old.

    I'd say so. I've raised Ameraucanas and Easter Eggers myself, so I'm familiar with that male comb, though your pictures aren't very clear.
