She has a greenish tint to her feathers which unfortunately my camera did not catch, there are two that look like her and there are two that have copper-y colored feathers by their necks (I kinda thought they looked like pictures of black copper marans) and then the one with the white around her neck

The greenish tint to the feathers is normal for black feathered breeds like Australorps. The ones with copper colored feathers around the neck area could be either Black Copper Marans or Black Sex Link pullets, but without seeing better pics I can't say for sure. Do they have the feathered legs typical of Marans?

Not really feathered per say but they are slate like a Maran rather than yellow like a sex link

Red Sex Links have yellow legs but Black Sex Links often have slate legs (see pic below).
