    My guesses. Others will be much better with the Rhodebars and Silver Sussex and Legbars...I haven't had those breeds/varities yet.

    MMMM I don't see many that could be a sussex due to yellow legs and feathered shanks. Sussex have clean white/ pinkish shanks and single combs. Brahmas have feathered yellow shanks and a pea comb. Cochins have feathered shanks mostly yellow but depeands on color of bird and a single comb. Rocks have clean yellow shanks and single combs. Didn't see any barred rocks. Marans can have or not be feathered shank with single combs and shank color on black or blue should be grey. Legbar and rhodebars have clean yellow shanks and single combs. Don't know how much this helps you, but I hope it helps some.
