GG is a ameracana
Mary Jane might be a Buff orpington
I can't see the comb well on the first bird, but if it's a rose comb he's a Colombian Wyandotte cockerel.
Second bird is an Easter egger pullet
third bird, can't see leg color well but if they're white/pink she's a buff Orpington.
I think they are all mixed breeds
First is a rooster, no doubt.
Second is an Easter Egger...possibly from Araucana blood as it looks to have some ear tufting
Third looks like a mixed breed possibly with some Buff Orpington in it.
It may be the photo blur, but I would check your birds for scaly leg mites, especially the buff colored bird.
Pearl (first one) doesn't have a comb.
Posted these peeps many times checking gender. Pearl was determined pullet. Roughly 5-6 months now.
How are let mites detected? How to treat?
Is Pearl laying eggs? She has saddle feathers and sickle curl tail feathers of a rooster.
I'll post a photo and instruction article for scaly leg mites below. (Note, I personally wouldn't use the gasoline method. I've simply applied vaseline thickly for a number of weeks for success with moderate cases.)
Only mama is laying. We were given mama and 9 chicks. I've posted several times and only one chick was deemed cockerel - Harvey. I agree that Pearl has the same feathers as Harvey but Pearl doesn't have a comb nor does Pearl crow.
Harvey mounts mama but Pearl does not. We don't want chicks, only eggs. We agreed to keep him as long as Harvey is 'nice'. Do I need to worry about Pearl too?
Would you please post a photo of Pearl head on, she does have a bit of red(comb?) on top of beak - would like to see full extent. Also in two photos the side view of Buff Orp? shows the head looking odd like it was shaved down or maybe a mixed buff orp.
Mary Jane's (3rd) legs are feathery. Check on her leg color and reply.
