    I believe I have identified two out of three of the egg layers we received Sunday. However, I'm having a difficult time identifying the white birds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I believe the other two breeds are Golden and Black Sex-Links. You can kind of see them here.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think single comb. Here is another picture that has a better angle for the comb.

    And that's why I added my guess for those! Had a feeling I might be wrong! I'm off to compare...

    Yep, those are light Brahmas. They have pea combs. The buff Orpington has a single comb as does the red sex link hen. The dewlap (skin hanging from the throat) and the feathered legs along with the comb are indicators of Brahmas.
