    We got them as adults and the previous owner didn't know the breeds. I'm thinking New Hampshire red, silver laced Wyandotte and golden laced polish. Your thoughts?

    Looks like:

    #1 - a Silver Penciled Wyandotte which is different (and rarer) than a Silver Laced
    #2 - Could be a New Hampshire Red or sex link
    #3 - Could be a polish mix or some sort

    The first is penciled, rather than laced.
    The second is likely a production red - also, her legs look rather rough in the photo, can you get a closer image of those, may be a matter of leg mites or something else that needs some attention.
    the third is not laced - and also not looking particularly Polish, but rather mixed. Can you get a side shot of her rather than one from above?

    First one is a Dark Brahma. The birds in the second photo are a Production Red and Polish mix.

    I'll have to try and get better pictures tomorrow although my husband said that her legs were like that when we got her. We do spread DE in the run and coop. Hoping that helps but it only seems to be on her.

    Thank you all for your input. We've had these ladies for nearly 3 years now and I never knew what breeds they were. At least I Ave an idea now.
