    The dark bird looks to be an Ancona.

    The hens are very pretty.

    The other one in the photo could be a Buff Orpington or a golden comet. Kind of hard to tell if the feathers are messed up on the back of the bird making them look lighter or if it is just light colored in that area.
    If they are kind of messed up then I would say Buff Orpington. (I am leaning toward this being the case.)

    I'm pretty sure this one is a buff but not 100%, any ideas what my mystery ones are?
