    Okay I believe this is a Sumatra pullet but she has a single comb.

    I'm not an expert about sumatras but it looks to me like you have an australorp mix and a very beautiful EE (easter egger). How old are they? Maybe someone who knows more about sumatras will be able to help with the first one. The second one is an EE for sure.

    Black one looks like a sumatra but they shouldn't have single combs [​IMG]
    your "Auracauna" is an Easter egger, a cross bred from Araucanas.
    But on the up side they both look like pullets [​IMG]

    I don't have any pic's of my 2 bantam sumatra hen's yet will try to get some tomm.But she look's like mine.The standard should look same though just smaller.They have short comb's and wattle's both hen's and roo's.I used to have the Standard's.The other hen is nice looking too. Here is a good BING link to compare photo's of Sumatra's.

    Sumatras should have purplish pea combs, not pinkish single combs.
    It could be from bad breeding of from a cross...
    I'm not fo-show though

    She has a short comb and wattled on the darker side when Aussies have larger bright red combs though

    Yes, but my Australorp had very small comb and wattles at 4 weeks too... They look older than 4 weeks to me though. Either way, I don't think she looks like a pure Australorp but it's possible it could be a sumatra/australorp mix? The eyes and head look aussie to me. Honestly, she could be mixed with anything. Unless you get your birds from a breeder or hatch your own eggs (or eggs from a knowledgeable BYC-er) you can't really be sure you get pure breeds. They definitely look like lovely girls though and will give you delicious eggs!
