    Here are 2 shots of my EE roos, they are crossed with something else,
    they have tufts on their heads, maybe a silkie, or cochin...

    notice how odd the combs are....

    I love the comb on the second one and love how good it looks with the black beak. [​IMG]

    Cochins don't have crests. Silkies have walnut combs so wouldn't give the comb shape your boys have. I would lean more towards Polish, Crevecoeur, or Houdan. Do they have feathered legs or extra toes?
