    Age would help, and a profile shot without being held so we can see the full body.

    Are the full size or bantam?

    I'm basing my answer on the last 3 photos as the others are either poor profiles or too much flash that I think the colors are affected.

    They look like Production Reds...the last 3 photos look to be pullets.

    The top photos are worrisome as that could be rooster, but if we are looking at the same birds, they are commercially bred to grow quickly, and roosters of the Production Red get large red combs very quickly...so I again think pullet...but watch and wait.

    My thoughts.

    They all look like Production Red cockerels to me.

    Are the two in the top photo in the last post you made with pictures accurate as to color or washed out due to flash as mentioned above? I ask as the skin looks to be white on those birds and yellow on the other birds who also appear darker (again, could be flash). If the top two do look like they do in the photo I'd almost lean towards Buff Orp for them and PR for the others.
