1, 2, 3, 8 cockerels

4, 5, 6, 7 pullets

I believe you’re correct on the easter eggers, or barnyard mixes. The barred ones could have a BR parent but with feathered legs maybe they have a Marans parent too? 2 looks like a Polish mix

4, 5, and 6 are pullets. 1, 2, 3, and 8 are cockerels. Most of those aren't easter eggers. #7 is your only easter egger. I agree with featheredplanets on #2 being a polish mix. 8, 6, 5, 4, and 3 look like pure cuckoo marans. #1 also might be part marans.

Do you think #7 is a pullet?

Hi again, so what breed would a BR be?

Barred (Plymouth) Rock :)

I think it’s often forgotten that easter eggers aren’t a pure breed, there are no standards, they can have any feather/leg colour and any comb, they’re mixes that are more likely to lay green/blue eggs :jumpy
