    it was really hard to get a good picture of these guys. Any guesses? I think one or both of them are half Australorp, about 7 months old each.

    Maybe an Australorp and Leghorn cross?

    The one with white earlobes looks like a Leghorn mix.
    Does the other one have a pea comb?

    They're definitely mixed breeds. With those white earlobes, the one has some type of Mediterranean class breed (probably Leghorn or perhaps Minorca) in it.

    yes, he has a pea comb. I thought leghorn/australorp too, he's really skittish and you should have heard him squawk when I caught him, he thought he was being killed.

    You don't get pea combs from an Australorp/Leghorn cross. These boys might have come from the same place, but they don't have the same parentage.
    Pea comb breed possibilities are Dark Cornish, Buckeye, or Easter Egger.
