    For sure the one in the front is a golden laced wyandotte. The next one to the left looks like a road island red. The last one looks like a leg horn.

    In agree that the one in the front is a Golden Laced Wyandotte and the white one is a White Leghorn, but the middle one (in the bottom pic) appears to me to have a rose comb and a dark partridge pattern, so I'm thinking it's also a Wyandotte (maybe a hatchery grade Partridge Wyandotte).

    I just read up on these breeds. The leghorns lay white eggs. One of my girls just laid their first egg and it beige light brown. I'm most certain it was my white hen, only because she is the only one squatting and her comb and wattle are bright red. So can it still possibly be a leghorn??

    I also agree that the darker hen is a partridge Wyandotte. She has the same type feathers as the golden lace just darker.

    I think the white one is a white rock. That would explain your brown eggs. :)

    Check her earlobes. They look white to me in the picture which is why I thought she was a White Leghorn. If I'm not see the red earlobes but she has them, then she is a White Rock. If her earlobes are white but she's laying a beige colored egg (light brown), she might be an Austra White. Austra Whites usually have a considerable number of black spots, but sometimes you get one that is virtually void of black spots. The other possibility is a White Leghorn/White Rock cross.
