    They look to me like two beautiful pullets! [​IMG] The first appears to be a partridge rock(It could be a Maran of some sort, but the only way you could be sure is if it layed a deep chocolate egg), and the other is a Easter Egger.

    The first is a Black Sex-Link, or Black Star Pullet.
    The second is an Easter Egger Rooster. Easter Eggers can often be sexed by color. Females have colors that calmly flow into each other, males are bright and blotchy.

    Edit:
    The third is also an Easter Egger Rooster.

    Where did you get these birds from? It is difficult to be able to make a guess, but right now I am saying the hen could be along the lines of a Welsummer. Better photos would help, I can't make a good guess on that photo.

    The other photos, which are of a cockerel... I'll have to get back to you on once you tell me where they came from, though EE maybe possible due to showing a beard but it doesn't necessarily have to be a EE.

    God bless,
    Daniel.

    Two very different colors. Partridge and Red Partridge (Welsummer) are also two very different color types, but follow the general shades of the Black Breasted Red. Meaning no solid black should be on a female.
