    Light sussex, columbian rock, or delaware? or any other breed? haha. They're not chatty, somewhat friendly and not flighty.

    The pics aren't good enough for me to tell.

    I'm guessing they're clean legged and straight combed?

    If white/pink skin, they're Sussex.
    If yellow skin, Rock or Delaware.

    Delaware hens have barring with the Colombian markings, so the black is barred or has a a speckled appearance, not solid black.

    It's fine :) They are Sussex then because of their pink legs, which indicates they have white/pink skin.
