Interested in determining breeds of the chickens I was given...

    Hey all,

    I'm new to keeping chickens and was given a coop with 15 (I only wanted 3 or 4 -- LOL). Anyhow, I've been researching for the last 6 months or so and think that I can identify a few, but was wondering if I could get some help.

    I'm fairly confident that this girl is a Leghorn.

    In this grouping, I know that the far right is a Barred Rock, and think that the white one is a Plymouth rock (she has a small comb and is bigger/fatter than the leghorn pictured above). I have a guess about 1 of the other 3 on the left, but I'm not positive. I want to say the one closest to the camera is a Rhode Island Red, but I have no idea about the other two.

    Another "group" shot, with a better picture of one of the white chickens.

    A better picture of the one at the bottom of the picture above:

    I think this one is an Easter Egger

    Thank you in advance.

    I see white leghorns, production reds, barred rock, and Easter eggers.
