    I can`t see the comb well on the black one but it looks like it might be a pea comb???
    If so I would say Black Australorp cross because of the pea comb. If you could post a side photo with legs and a head one showing the comb it would help.

    Australorp have a single comb not a pea comb....

    That`s why I said BA cross....because it looks like it has a pea comb so can`t be a pure BA...

    Looks like a young pullet with a single comb that hasn't grown out yet. I'm going to guess minorca. And bantam ameraucana.
