    I see what looks like a barred rock and a light brahma. Not sure about the ones in the back. The orangish one looks like it might be a mix, not 100% on that though

    The black/white striped bird is a Barred Rock rooster. The white/black bird with feathered legs is a Light Brahma. I could tell gender with a better pic. If you post good profile pics of each bird we'll be happy to help you. :) (If you're wanting to know gender, it also really helps if we know how many weeks old they are)

    Edited to add: Welcome to BYC!!!

    Thanks. It's the red one giving me the brain tremors. It is really tall compared to the rest of my flock. And those are Ameraucanas in the back.

    [​IMG] This one is also a puzzler. These are the only two I can't identify.

    I am also in agreement. You have in the first photo two roos for sure: the barred plymouth rock and the buff something. The light brahma looks like a pullet, but a whole body pic might be good. in the back I would love to see their heads, but there is a blue and a splash something (oh, just realized you said they were ameraucanas). As for the last roo, the crele, he sure looks like a pendesenca, but then there are quite a few color mixes that would yield something looking like him so who knows.
