    I see mostly mixed bred hens. You've got a few girls that could be full Production Reds, and what looks like a Barred Rock (though I can't see the head or feet so it could be a BR cross or another Barred/Cuckoo breed. Blue hen in the first pic could also be a Blue Andalusian, though she's a bit stocky for the breed. You've got a good couple roosters too, but the only one I can 100% identify is the black one in the middle of the first photo, who is a mixed breed.

    I agree with Queen Misha

    But, it's too many birds milling around to focus well on any one at a time. I don't think anyone can do a "lightning round," of naming breeds, or mixtures unless you put up individual photos of each bird. Facing front so display comb, wattles, etc. Profile view standing naturally, so other gender features are in full sight.

    Thanks. The last pic was 2-3 years ago. Those were mostly stolen from my coop.

    I will try and put a pic with only one hen. But i guessed they were all mixed breed.
