Greetings!
I have acquired a new flock this year. I will apologize that the pictures are not very clear or good. This is what I am thinking I have:
2 barred rock
1 white barred rock(rooster)
1 white barred rock hen
1 buff Orpington
The other three I have no idea. I was thinking Rhode Island Red for two of them but I am not sure. I will try to get better pictures and post for clarification purposes.

Production Red pair, one BO pullet, White Rock pair, two BRs (can't tell gender from that pic), Some sort of hatchery mix, and what looks like a possible Ancona pullet. Can't tell if it's an Ancona or SS from that pic.

Ok so here are some I hope better pictures. I think I got all 9 birds. They were supposed to be sexed. 8 hens and one rooster. I know it’s not 100%. I do think I have two roosters however the second one does not make a sound at all.

How old are they? One of your BR is actually a Dominique. Though it has an odd comb. Your red birds look like RIR in these more recent pics.

Where did they come from?
I got them from the cackle hatchery. They just sent a variety pack and it’s their pick. They are about 17 weeks old. Thank you! I thought the red ones were Rhode Island reds but was not sure. I come with snacks and they all run after me. The cutest thing ever! They are definitely more calm than the last group we had. I do appreciate all the help I can get!

I will work on getting some better pictures tomorrow. They were getting ready for bed when I snapped those pictures earlier. Thank you for your help!

At 17 weeks old, the only cockerels you have are the White Rock and the RIR. Everyone else that's red and developed are just getting closer to POL.

I think that #1 is a Speckled Sussex, and #4 is a Buff Orpington. #6 looks like a Rhode Island red, #3 & #8 are Barred Rocks, and #9 is a Dominique. #11 is a rooster, and #5 could possibly be one too.
