    3 and 6 appear to be girls. Not positive of the breeds. Yes on the partridge cochin, I think. It's a standard, right?

    Both of the RIR's look like cockerals. So does the white one, which I would call a Cornish cross....the Cochin looks like a pullet.

    #4 I would think might be a Cornish X...legs are thick rather than thinner and overall leaner bird like the Leghorn.

    # 4 i'll try to get a better pic today . I don't think he's cornish x because he the same size as the others but he does smell worst then the others lol.Also he seems to be the boss roo out of them all so far he tends to protect the ones i think are hens.
