    On a little Farm.
    If they are Duckwing, they are Light Brown Leghorns. You have all Pullets for the leghorns.
    Medium-Gray = Bluebell X
    Black with a little gray = Barred Plymouth Rock (ones with white on there heads are Pullets)
    Total Black = Australorp X
    Buff/tan = Columbian Plymouth Rock
    White = Amberlinks

    Oops, sorry, you're right -- Amberlinks are the tan ones. Columbians are Silver + the Columbian gene which eliminates the head spots. Sorry.
