    Gee, looks like some Cochin/Silkie x Barred Rock crosses my friend and I hatched-Almost identical, in fact, to one she called "Clover".

    I found a picture of hers, if you can see it in the middle of that bunch in the barn. Mine looked just like a Barred Rock cockerel, but with a poufy hairdo, LOL.

    but the ones in her pics have white earlobes....Not sure, but thought that I would toss that out there..Possibly a barred rock cross with a leghorn of some variety?

    Interesting! Legbars have white earlobes and their ancestry includes Barred Rocks and Brown Leghorns AND they have a little crest like in the pic's. I'd say that's likely what they are. [​IMG]
