    I'm not sure how many birds those are pictures of, but only the last barred one looks to be a girl, (what kind of comb does she have? almost looks flat?), the one behind her is a boy . Of the RIR the two on the right look like boys. The white one actually looks more like a white rock than a leghorn, when hens are moved to a new home or otherwise upset, they often will stop laying for a couple of weeks or more, especially if they have gone into a molt... her feathers look really nice so that is what she may have done.
