    My Guesses ...
    Pic 1, The roo looks like maybe a White Rock, the barred girl could be a Barred Rock.
    Pic 2, if he is a breed, could be a Swedish Flower Hen, if a mix, part Specked Sussex.
    Pic 3, another Barred Rock, that one looks female.
    Pic 4, Easter Egger Roo.
    Pic 5, Silver Leghorn? American Game?
    Pic 6, No tail? EE/Ameraucana/Araucana, probably with Araucana close up, could also be Manx Rumpy.
    Pic 7, Is the group shot, the White Rock, Sussex x?, OEG, EE, the far background one looks Cuckoo.
    Pic 8, The EE roo again.
    Pic 9, The Sussex X, A female RIR/Production Red/Red Sex Link, Barred Rock
    Pic 10, The barred/cuckoo bird in the backgound looks darker than the others?
    Pic 11, SL or AG again

    I counted 3 roosters total so far, the White Rock?, the speckly one, and the EE. Depending on their age, the rest look like girls, so seven girls hopefully if you have 10 total. Do you know ages and if they are supposed to be purebreds, would help with breed/sex guesses. Know you said you rescued one of them. If you plan on keeping all the roosters, you will probably need more girls, they usually recommend 8-10 girls per rooster.
