    #1 hatchery type cornish rooster
    #2-3 barred rock crosses hens
    #4 barred rock crosses rooster
    #5-6 might be some sort of game cross or hatchery old english game bantams and there roosters
    #7 hard to tell on the black hen but the rooster looks to be a hatchery type spangled hamburg
    #8 brahma cross rooster

    You have a whole lot of red sex-links. Number 6 is the rooster to those hens, or at least, that's what they look like. # 5 does look a lot like a game chicken, who appears to have been poorly dubbed.

    I would say #5 wasn't dubbed he just has what looks like a modified pea comb.
    On #6 I don't think he is a sex-link the color on him looks to be a pyle color as on some OEGB and other game.

    #6 is a RSL roo. Here's my Peaches. Well-not mine any more. I sold him on Sunday.

    At first I thought it was him.
