Unwell chickens sometime have a droopy comb but those look like more of a defect in breeding. It is hard to tell in those pictures. Do you have any pictures of the entire body? Standing would be even better.

I have a pet quality Japanese rooster that is of the same coloring. You can check him out in my profile pics.

They could be one of 2 things. From the pictures you sent the spires are short and th e tipsters wouldn't have all there colouring yet. But could also be a serama from the way he stands but my Japanese rooster stands really tall to. I'm not sure about the hen. If it's a grey close around her neck I would say she's Japanese. Hope that helps:)

Warm.... Under a blanket... In Alaska...
Either way they're hatchery / pet quality.
Their legs look to be short, so OEGB is off the table. Heck, got any OEGB for size comparison? If not just a idea :)
They're pretty. They look to be japs, but poor breeding.
If you breed them and get the fatal leg gene (not sure how that works...) then japs for sure, not leg gene then Seremas.
