    The first looks a lot like my amber sex-link rooster. But I am no expert.

    The second looks like a buff rock or buff leghorn.

    Second photo is a buff leghorn hen, possibly a cross with a buff orpington.

    Third photo is a silver spangled hamburg.

    Fourth photo is an australorp or a jersey giant.

    The comb of the second one is completely wrong for a Buff Orpington. It looks more like a Mediterranean breed.

    1. Red sex-link male.
    2. Buff Leghorn female (white earlobes), not knowing her age, it could be a Buff Minorca because of the white legs, but I'm assuming Leghorn and that she's an older bird who has used up the yellow in her legs and beak.
    3. Silver-Spangled Hamburg female
    4. Black Australorp male (I can't see a hint of yellow on the soles of his feet, so I'm going to assume Australorp.)

    Cara, other breeds can have combs that flop over as well, especially those that have older hens. My production red for one had a comb that flopped onto itself.

    Do hens have big combs like roosters or will that get smaller?
