    They are all supposed to be hens what do you all think? Some seem to have pretty large combs. I have only ever had silkies, so I know nothing about these. I think that the silver one is a maran and the black and white one might be a barred rock or Dominique. No clue about the other two. Any ideas?

    All hens.

    On the barred bird, are the legs yellow? If so barred rock

    The tannish bird looks like a cream legbar.

    Dark hen - partridge rock? Barnevelder? Can't see if it's single laced or double.

    Light hen- blue splash maran? I see feathered legs. I'm thinking so.

    Though, I would love to see closeups of all but the barred rock to be sure.

    Thanks so much.
    The barred bird has greyish legs.
    The dark red bird is double laced.
    The light gray bird has no splashes at all its just gray, and yes feathered feet.
    I will try and get some closer photos this evening but the birds are pretty skittish so I might not have much luck.

    I agree with these guesses (except the "dark hen" is a Barnevelder)
