    Agree with orp on #1 because of the white/pink feet, rocks should have yellow. #2, looks like one, wonder if a mix or young since would expect a cochin to be fluffier. #3, no clue, gold laced something back there, really like the coloring though.

    First is a buff Orpington.

    The next two are mixed breed hens. They could have some cochin in them, the straight combs and feathered legs, but pure cochins are much rounder and fluffier. Really no telling what they're mixed with, but they're both beautiful birds--very pretty colors!

    #1: Buff Orpington, because of the leg color and body type. Buff Rocks are more long-backed and have yellow legs, while Orpingtons have white legs and are deeper in body.
    #2: Probably a hatchery-quality Partridge Cochin. I would expect a Cochin to be more fluffy, though. Could be a Partridge Cochin cross.
    #3: Mixed breed. Likely has some Cochin in her.

    All are beautiful birds!

    You have one Buff Orpington, a Partridge Cochin hen, and a mix, probably with some Cochin and a Golden-laced bird in her background.
