    the first picture looks like a single comb....the second picture is hard to tell...if you know what breed of chicken it is,then you might be able to identify it better

    Well, they were sold as Easter Eggers, but there were some bantams (not sure what kind) in the same box. Not sure if I picked up a bantam though. Both chicks have feathered legs. They're probably just mixes.

    The only other thing I can think of is strawberry comb,or rose comb.

    The first one looks like a single comb but it also looks like it has green legs, that would make it an EE and it would have a pea comb. A front view would have been better. The second looks like a rose comb.

    I would like a front few on both to be positive but, the first looks like a Single Comb and the second looks like a Rose Comb.

    They both could be EE's since a EE can come in any color, have any color legs, have any type of comb, and lay any color egg.

    Any better? The feet aren't exactly green like the ones I've seen pictures of on here. I'm actually worried that the first one is a bantam roo.

    Lots better,
    The first is a Single Comb and a rooster the second one looks to be a very flat/immature Rose comb or a Cushion Comb.
    The Cushion Comb would be the result of crossing a Pea Comb Breed with a Rose Comb Breed so either way it has some Rose Comb bred into it.

    Guess I'm just gonna have me a little red rooster! He's too sweet to send back.

    What kind of breeds have rose combs?
