    I only know its not Salmon Faverolle because they have beards. I was gonna guess maybe the blacks and blues were possible Marans(only because I have chicks that look similar). But im a chicken newbie and Im not very good with breed identification lol

    She's an Ex-bat and you are in SA, right? Then she's very likely a Lohmann Silver. I had some battery hens (POL pullets) that looked like she does and they were Lohmann Silver. The other popular battery hen breed by you is Amberlink, but I'm not 100% sure what they look like.
