    Well , I can't say any are pure but maybe. There is indeed Barred rock and cuckoo somehting or other. Cuckoo is a pattern not a breed, and there is an Aruacana noted by the tufts. Aruacana should have tufts and no rump. Unless you got these from a reputable breeder it would be hard to say anything about the purity. The main thing is that you like them.

    Wishing you the best

    they are from different breeders, some 'reputable' by word of mouth(!)

    i am hoping at least the marans are pure, paid a good price for those (1 young roo, 3 young hens and 2 older hens, just the older two are shown on the photos)

    Wow- you have quite a variety there!
    I see a black sex link (possibly australorp), a black copper marans, an araucana (think it's pure), cuckoo marans, barred rock,blue marans or rocks, and some possible mixes. Not necessarily in that order [​IMG]

    so is pic 5 maybe a true araucana or a cross? ive never seen something with tufts like that before! the small brown is also meant to be araucana (has no tail, but no tufts??)

    In the last pic, the dark chicken in the middle sort of resembles a Barnvelder?
