    The last one and the all white ones are the two that I think are more pure bread and do not know the breeds. You can see some are a mix of the white and the barred rock.

    I got 13 new birds from a friend. I have identified some as obvious barred rock. There are two other breeds and some mixed that I cannot identify. Any help would be appreciated. I can post more pictures if needed.

    This is a better picture of the breed I would really like to know what it is. I do not think it is a mixed breed but I cannot be sure. Thanks.

    They do look like mixed breeds, possibly with some barred rock in them. The white hen looks like a Wyandotte/ Sussex or something like that. More and better pictures would be helpful.

    This young man isn't a pure bred anything, he looks like he may be a second generation sex link, or just a mix of a red and a white bird.

    Your barred birds aren't pure barred rocks, they have barring but aren't pure.

    The white bird may be a white rock, a comb shot would help.

    I think basically you have a mixed breed flock, with a couple of cockerels. If you want specific guesses on a particular bird, get individual pics, profile shots including legs and comb. Age is good, too.
