    Welsummer rooster
    I think a Langshan rooster/cockerel
    Phoenix may indeed be a Phoenix. Need a pic of her standing naturally to see her body shape and tail set better.
    Red bird behind her may be an Easter egger--looks like pea comb and beard?
    Ivory looks like a white Rock
    Red hens are likely production reds or mixed breeds. White earlobes on the second one? that shows mixed breeding.
    I think Langshan pair.

    Your rooster is all male and I'm sure he knows it. Part of being a good provider is showing the hens he can find a nice secure nest for them to lay...he's showing off for them.

    Nope, Barnevelders are pretty different. They're laced, and I think have pea combs, and clean legs.

    My choices here were between Langshan and Marans, with the feathered legs. The lack of any copper coloring on either bird, and the more upright tail especially on the male, with the longer legs, made me go Langshan. They're not a very common breed, kind of unusual to see.

    Bird in front is a double laced barnevelder hen. Lacing means the feathers are dark with a lace ring around them. The bird behind the barnevelder is a silver laced cochin.

    This is my barnevelder rooster for comparison. Excuse his comb, it is a single comb but he lost his tips to frostbite.
