    Hello and Welcome to BYC!
    Picture two looks like a SLW and a girl.
    Picture three looks like austrolorps and again girls, not sure about the rest though. Have fun with your chickens!

    thank you the first one is the same age as the silver pencilled wyandotte and the two australorps (they are identical) but she is really not growing or laying and has one eye leathered over, my husband is starting to worry about her and she just started making funny noises lately.
    thank you for your help!! now i can start learning about the specific breeds :)
