At only seven weeks old and combs as big as they are already they look like White Leghorns to me, but they could be White Rocks.  None of the other breeds you listed are solid white.

Anyone sure about females in this group? I have 8 of these white chickens. I had 8 roos packed in with my 16 (3 EE and 13 brown layer assortment ) female only order. Would that be too much of a coincidence?

If you had eight packing peanuts then I'd bet money that all eight of the white birds are Leghorn roosters.  I don't think any brown egg layer would have combs that big at seven weeks.

Look at the sickle feathers on the flopped comb birds. Those are male feathers.

 

All are White Leghorn or Leghorn Hybrid males. Will make fair dumplins!

i have never heard flopped comb means hen, these are all roosters, no pullet is flopping a comb at that age.

We caught two of them in the act of crowing tonight and at 8 weeks, they are all looking very rooish. Thanks for all the help everyone.

White leghorn roos, every one. Packing peanuts can be any breed they have extras of.
