Sorry about the pictures. It's the best I can do. There are 2 Andalusians, 1 Australorp and 2 Light Sussex. The adoptive mother is an Australorp.

It's a bit confusing from the photos but from your first post I gather you have five chicks. One black, two blue, and two white. The Sussex both look like pullets. Based on photos 1 & 2 in your last post the Australorp looks like a cockerel. One of the Andalusians is a cockerel, but not sure about the second.

Thanks chuckachucka. The photos are a bit erratic, but I can't catch the chicks except for the Australorp. My suspicions are the same as yours. I am still not sure of the Australorp though as they can have red combs and wattles. I have a hen with largeish red comb and wattles.

Pic 1 and 2 are solely Australorp. Pic 3 is the Australorp and one of the Andalusians. Pictures 4-7 are the Australorp in the back with the Light Sussex chicks in the foreground. Pic 8 is the Andalusian that I think is a boy. Pic 9 is a Light Sussex. Pic 10 is blurry Light Sussex in foreground, Andalusian in between and Australorp at the back. Pic 11 is with the Light Sussex in the foreground.
