    These ladies (hopefully) are from the MMH Ornamental Layers collection. I have the obvious ones figured out but had some questions on a few:

    2 Cuckoo Marans and a Sumatra/Spanish/Minorca (there's a Fayoumis in one of the pics too)?

    Buff Laced Polish boy or girl? The WCB is obviously female.

    Silver Laced Polish, boy or girl?

    No need for guesses, but just showing off my pretty EE girls:

    The phoenix looks like silver americauna mix. The first ones dont look very Marans shaped. Dominiques? Are there supposed to be marans in there? The buff polish maybe roo. I thought I saw that the ones with messier hair were male. Mine are only 3 days old so I haven't got that one down yet.

    Cuckoo Marans should have white legs. Since yours are from a hatchery they're probably mixed.

    I think Dominiques were listed as an option also, so that could be what the black & white ones are. The pictures online looked more like barred rocks than my pullets do, but the catalog pictures aren't always the best.
