Supposed to have a few rare breeds in this bunch of pullets from Hoover Hatchery - what say you?

Also, is the black one a cockerel or pullet? (photos 3804, 3851, 3857)
Also, there is a mutant pullet here - her lower beak is pulled to the left side and her toes are twisted and maybe too many? She eats the feed just fine.

I am not an expert so don’t take this as fact but I see a black austrolorp (for the life of me I can never spell it right) a barred rock with the stripes. The orangy one looks like a Orpington. The black with brown neck feathers might be a sexlink? The one with feet feathers might be a Cochin or Brahma. I’m not sure about the brown multicolored ones. Your girl with scissor beak looks happy and healthy. The toes might be caused by a vitamin deficiency or deformity. As long as she can eat and drink she’ll be fine. All of these breeds are educated guesses based on my experience. I may or may not be right.
