    Can you get closer pictures of their combs or tell us what kind of combs they have? The 1st one is definitely a cockerel though, I'll tell you that!

    1-3 have single combs,
    4 and 5 have a flat smooth comb... maybe rose, strawberry, or cushion.

    I guess I should have told you guys the possibilities:

    Silver laced Wyandotte
    Red laced blue Wyandotte
    Golden laced Wyandotte
    Silver Sussex
    Partridge Rock
    Blue wheaten Americauna
    White Faced Black Spanish
    Welsummers
    Mottled Javas

    #1 looks like a SLW
    #2 looks like a White Faced Black Spanish
    #3 might be a Mottled Java?
    #4 looks like a BLRW
    #5 looks like a Partridge Rock, are you sure she has a rose comb?

    Where did you get them from?

    Got them from a friend of mine that keeps all those breeds.

    After some research, 1-3 couldn't be Wyandottes or BFSpanish... they have single combs and all came from brown eggs, which eliminates those breeds. So now I'm thinking sussex or mottled java... thought #3 might be an Australorp, until the penciling started happening... now who knows.

    4-5 could only be Americauna or some sort of wyandotte due to the combs. I checked them again for certainty and they do indeed have smooth flat combs. You can't see it really, but #5 is really dark and #4 is very light.

    #1 could still be a SLW...There are some Wyandottes that do have single combs...
    #2 Im not too certain...
    #3 looks like a sussex
    #4 i think are BLRW
    #5 I would guess Patridge Rock if it wasnt for that flat comb [​IMG]...so im not really sure
