Hi all!

I am wondering if anyone recognizes any of these chicken breeds. I have some speculations but I am very new to chicken keeping and definitely am relying on plenty of google searching.
They are all around 5-6 months old.

Pictures 1&2: I have no idea what the two completely solid black ones are, one is a pullet the other is a cockerel. Both have a green or purple sheen to their feathers, black legs, pea combs that are just starting to get lighter as they were a greyish pink colour as chicks.
Picture 3: black and grey pullet, pea comb still light pink.
Picture 4: Then i have a black and brown muffed chicken with a pea comb, not sure if pullet or cockerel.
Last two pictures: I believe the colourful guy lookin right at the camera is a copper maran, he has feathered feet. I also thought the hen that is mostly black with cooper around the neck was a maran, she has a very small and almost black comb, big black eyes just gorgeous.

I have a few more im curious about but this is probably an overload already! Thanks in advance for any help identifying the breeds.

Some of them look like mutts. I think the orange/black one is an easter egger, based off the ear muffs.
The last one might be a maran.

Also, a lot of them look like cockerels...

oh and just before anyone gets too worried...I definitely picked up that foam piece right after the photos, no idea where its from but I know chickens like to peck at that stuff so I grabbed it.

I had guessed of 21 we have 10 cockerels...but I could be wrong on a few I thought were pullets.

Hi I agree the ones with grey legs look like Australorps, lovely hens. And the roosters are usually nice too - I breed them.
not loads about either in the uk.
the one with the long tail feathers is your chap and the other looks like she may be a blue one rather than black or that just could be the lighting. Ive attached a photo of one of my blue ones.

Thank you for your reply! I had wondered if they were Australorps!

Thats a beautiful hen you have there! I do have one that has similar colouring but she could be mixed with something else as her comb is quite small still and light.
