    She is shy and low on the totem pole. But she's new here as well. She has a few white feathers on her black pouf head.

    Definitely a mix, she may have some Australorp or Polish in her though I'm not sure.

    The hen looks like a Polish mix, probably a white crested black. Mixed with what.....hard to say. No other breed characteristics are jumping out.

    the little rooster looks like a silkie mix, probably with Cochin from the rounded appearance and amount of fluff.
