    All look nice and healthy. You do not have Ameraucana in any of these. Wrong color and/or no beard/muffs.

    Agree with the Lady.

    does that white bird have feathers on her legs?

    I agree with the majority on everything but the Black ones.

    I think they are Black Australorps ( hatchery ones) with "bleed through" on the hackles. I have gotten some from a hatchery that had the same red on them. I cannot see the toes/feet so am not 100%. And as always I could be 100% wrong.

    So the feathered feet mean the white bird is a cochin or mix thereof. She may tend to go broody if you're inclined to have a momma hen raise chicks.
