    Their are 14 chickens in total,
    I was told when I bought them that thier was 6 RIR
    4 of the same bird (black partridge) but couldnt tell me what ???
    and the three whites were supposed to be the same.
    I know the two are different from the third, and I know the the one red is not
    a red but maybe a sex link
    Any guess on the roo?
    Ill try to get some better pics tommorow

    The red hens with white in their tails are Red sex linked like you thought. The rooster looks like a RIR. and the hens with the gray legs look like EE of EE cross hens. You will know if the ones with gray legs lay a blue or green egg.

    the other reds are tough to tell.

    I agree with Veer67, except on the white bird with black on her neck. She's either a poor quality Columbian Wyandotte (Wyandottes should have rose combs, and she has a single comb), or she's a Columbian Plymouth Rock. Light Sussex should have white legs, and she has yellow ones.

    I agree. A better picture of that hen would help, especially a comb and side picture.

    Red with white in the tail are red sex links. Solid red birds are production reds/generic hatchery red layers, as is the rooster. Solid white birds look like white rocks, the white bird with the black collar and tail looks like a Colombian rock. Multicolored hens look like black sex links. A nice mixed flock, all good egg laying breeds.

    Could the white with black neck and tail feathers could be a light brahma mix?

    If it had a feather legged parent like a Brahma, it should have at least light leg feathering and I don't see any. Can't see the comb type well, I was saying Rock based on the yellow legs (Sussex have white) and clean legs.
