    i would say the 2 white ones are leghorn crosses . They look to have some othe colors on some of thier feathers .

    The black one maybe an austrolorp

    the red one is a Rhode island red

    the brown with is a brown leghorn

    i think the oegb is a wheaton roo but not sure

    I agree. White ones look like white leghorns, brown one is brown leghorn. The black one I don't know, but not an Australorp, no black legs. The others look like RIR, but I can't tell if roo or not. How old are they? There isn't any saddle feathers apparent in the picture, and they look a lot like my RIR pullet a few weeks ago.

    Your OEGB is a Black Breasted Red. I had one, and it looked just like yours.

    I have two California Whites that are a White Leghorn/California Grey(?) cross. They are white with black flecks. In the pics it looked like yours had some flecking.

    Black one could be a sex link.

    Sally and Floppsy are leghorns. They are the same two colored leghorns I keep. [​IMG] The rest I don't know.
