    I think they are Australorp on the first one, and Barred Rocks....roos or pullets?
    I have 4 of the Rocks and 5 of the Austrlorps....(they better be pullets!)

    I believe them to be around 4-5 weeks old
    (sorry my first time posting, the pics are a bit smallish)

    Black Australorps and Barred Rocks indeed - But it looks like you might have a cockerel in amongst your BA's. The last photo and the middle photo show a chick with a rather larger and more red colored comb coming in.
