    I agree but would add that the first could also be a Jersey Giant (check the bottom of the feet, pink=Australorp and yellow=Jersey Giant). The last one in the first batch of pictures could be a gold spangled Hamburg but I would like to see a better pic of the comb.



    D'Uccles are also a true bantam breed which means there isn't a large fowl counterpart.

    I have some just like your #2, TSC "black layer"...so they are silver laced Wyandottes? I have 3, two have small combs, one has no comb at all and they have white "ears". Legs are streaked black on the front, yellow behind. Might they be some kind of black commercial layer that is crossed on a silver laced something?
