    They look partridge to me. I cant see well enough on my phone to make definite on the beard but I think the first is clean and the second is bearded.

    Judging by the lack of wattles I would say both are bearded. Unfortunately the color is harder to determine without full body shots. However going by just the head shots I think they may be a non-standard (mixed) color.

    I think they're genetically bearded, they'r just not showing much beard....if that makes sense.

    Can't see color from the shots, but I'm thinking mixed color. black with leakage, from what I can see.

    can't tell what color that is - I think all their energy went to growing those huge combs
