    1- white crested black Polish
    2- maybe a white Plymouth rock
    3- maybe a white Plymouth rock or cross. Legs should be yellow for a white rock, though.
    4- probably a Wyandotte cross.
    5- production Rhode Island red. Legs should be more yellow, so could be a cross.
    6- white crested blue Polish
    7- red sex link.

    All look like pullets so far.

    What @JedJackson said... except #5... I think its a speckled Sussex or a cross.

    That could be. I don't see much speckling but a Sussex/production red cross would probably look a lot like this bird.

    What beautiful Chickens! Congrats on your flock.
    1. White Crested Black Polish pullet
    2. White Plymouth Rock, leaning towards cockerel
    3. White Orpington pullet
    4. Leaning towards a Dark Cornish and cockerel, possibly a pullet.
    5. Production Rhode Island Red cross, leaning towards cockerel
    6. White Crested Blue Polish pullet
    7. Buff Orpington cross, also leaning towards cockerel
    Where did you get them? That might help for more definite answers on their breed.

    look at the hen's ears.. those are the flat spots on each side of her head with no feathers on them.
    the color/shade of the ears is a pretty good indicator of what color the egg will be..

    You could easily have some crosses. #2, 5, 7, I'm definitely leaning towards cockerels.
