    Best guess is number 1 is a Easter Egger #3,4 Barred Rocks #5 Rhode Island Red #6 Buff Orpington and #8 a Brahma.
    Number two looks like it may be a Blue something (they are called blue when they look grey) Nice photos

    My guesses
    1. Light brown leghorn
    2. Blue something. Maybe Orpington, maybe Andalusian.. Maybe other.
    3/4. Barred Plymouth rocks
    5. Red sex link?
    6/7. What color are those legs? White/ pink: buff orpingtons. Yellow: buff Plymouth rocks.
    8. Light brahma

    Now I see where you got them. That helps! It doesn't look like they have buff rocks, so that's out. 5 might be a New Hampshire.
