    - All the feathered legged ones are marans.
    -#2 may be an olive egger. It is not an easter egger or it would have a pea comb.
    -#5 is a wyandotte (rose comb).
    -#4 Blue wheaten maran
    By the way, olive eggers are often a mix of a maran because marans make the olive color of the eggs more vibrant, so keep that in mind.
    They are cute! [​IMG] Sorry I can not be of more help!
