    My guesses:

    a. White laced polish
    b. White polish
    c. White crested black polish
    d. Hard to see the comb there and i the legs are really white or relly bleached out. Skinny legs and body but long tail. My guess would be either leghorn with short floppy comb I can't see or a game mix
    e. I can't see the leg color, but if they are yellow, my guess is a buff rock. If they were white, I'd say buff orp. However... they are too skinny to be really ether one of those... so I want to say a mix with a leghorn due to that comb.. do buff leghorns exist? Either way, it looks like a Mediterranean breed.
    f. EE
    g. Speckled hamburg? De Uccle mix?
    h: Seabright speckled hamburg mix?

    D.
    Has very white legs and a short floppy comb

    Oh on
    C:White Crested Black Polish they all have good size spurs, but they don't crow and our roosters seem to think they are hens.
    Do they normally have spurs?

    The WC black in the pic is a hen. Hens can have spurs.

    HAHA! Yeah, I have 47 total and I'm getting 8 more next week!! WAHOO!! I love that my Dad and Mom are so supportive of all my chickens! They said as long as they can pay for themselves and any birds you want YOU can buy with money you've made - go for it! haha.. I never have to ask them for money, It's great!! I love being able to support myself like that. =] I just bought 17 Porc. d'Uccle eggs, a mix of 10 white cochin and d'Uccle eggs, 2 white cochin pairs, 2 little chicks, a pair of Mille Fluer d'Uccles and 27 button quail eggs! LOL
