    Hello, I am no expert, but the polish looks "henish" and the pic of the 2 cochins look like a boy and a girl to me. The pinkish comb usually indicates a roo. I could be wrong though, I love guessing [​IMG]

    Could the packing peanut be a red shouldered something? (Yokohama?)
    I have never seen a red shouldered chick anything, so thats just a guess.

    Those last two pictures are two chicks of the same breed I think... unless they mix breeds for peanuts

    Those are nice peanuts, although I have no clue what they are.

    I think your polish is a pullet. I think the first pic of cochins, they're blue. The next pic looks splash. The packing peanuts are definitely red sex-links.
