    I bought some eggs on ebay last year from a farmer with a mix of "Bantam / Serama / Silkie / D'uccle / Cochin / Frizzle / Seabright" chickens. Well 2 of the chickens I got from the hatch don't appear to be any of these breeds (I don't think) not to mention... these roosters have no combs or waddles?! What in the world? I've done a lot of research and can't find any rooster breeds like this. Do you have any idea what breed or mix they are and have you ever heard or seen a rooster without a full comb? I thought they were hens until they became big, aggressive, protective, sexual, dominating and crow very loudly. I think their beautiful, I'm just curious to what they might be?

    They definitely have some cochin and/or D'uccle blood in them judging by the feet feathers and that they are bantams. They may even have some Easter Egger or Ameracauna in them.

    They have perfectly normal combs, for they type of comb they have. They look like a rose comb, or some mixed flat comb, so it's not the big sticking-up-points-in-the-air of a straight comb. Someone here has a nice drawing that shows the different types of combs, but you can look up rose combs for examples.

    The lighter bird had a lot of d'uccle, the darker bird probably has some silkie back in the gene pool somewhere for that cute little crest.

    They look to me like a D'anver cross.
