    Im definitely no expert, but with no information on age I'm going to say White African/Embden cross. They appear to have the size and body type of the African minus the dewlap. From the neck down they just have that African body type. If they are as large as they appear to be, that would be my guess. If they are smaller, then KS's guess might be more appropriate.

    I agree with kswaterfowl, white chinese/embden crosses, because white africans are not all that common.

    I don't know, with that creamy color on their wings I'm thinking there's some American Buff as part of the cross.

    It looks like a American buff/embden crosses to me. I have both breeds, but no mix. [​IMG]

    Quote:If there is no trace of the knob above the upper bill you can rule out both China and African.
