    I recently got 2 new cockerels, one I found on the moor abandoned and brought home, his name is lucky he is only young I think, maybe not even a year old yet but is fully grown

    the other was given to me, he is a little older and is a bantam breed

    the first is a mixed breed
    the second at first look I thought was a barred rock bantam, but it looks like he has a pea comb.Can you tell what kind of comb he has?

    Second one may be a dominique bantam, I agree that the first one looks like a mix.

    First one looks like a mix. I think that the second one is a Dominque bantam, or it could possibly be a barred Wyandotte bantam.

    he has a pea comb I think. This is a photo of him with the hen he came with and my two wyandotte bantam hens

    From the photo, it looks like he has a rose comb, not a pea comb. Could you post a close-up photo of the top of his head? I'm pretty sure he's a Wyandotte bantam or other rose-combed breed.
