    1. Japanese/Cochin perhaps?

    2. EE hen-if it were a rooster it would not carry that feather pattern

    3. ??? Not likely a Buttercup because of the single comb.

    They'll all lay eggs, well not the rooster [​IMG] but none are particularly prolific layers, although you should get some pretty colored eggs from the EE. [​IMG]

    If that first one is bantam sized, he looks alot like a Porcelain D'Uccle cockerel the feedstore had once. Very cute. The second one is an Easter Egger then could be a mixed rooster. Looks similar to a Welsummer, but not exactly.
