The pics aren't good enough for me to tell. 

 

I'm guessing they're clean legged and straight combed?

 

If white/pink skin, they're Sussex.

If yellow skin, Rock or Delaware.

 

Delaware hens have barring with the Colombian markings, so the black is barred or has a a speckled appearance, not solid black.

It's fine smile.png They are Sussex then because of their pink legs, which indicates they have white/pink skin.
