    Hello,
    I just got these guys today. All girls (suppost to be) and sweet as can be. I have 11 of them. And all marked as shown. Any clue as to what breeds they are?

    I'm not too sure, but I think the black ones could be Australorps.

    Looks like mine. I have Delaware, New Hampshire, and Speckled Sussex plus the EE (Aracauna).

    White one could be a leghorn - looks older than the others. I agree that the striped ones are likely easter eggers and that the black ones could be Australorps. Do the black ones have white throats and butts? The buff ones could be buff orpingtons or rhode island reds. Are they more yellow or more strawberry blonde colored?
