So the subject says it all. I have some guesses, but want some more educated opinions. They were sold as brown egglayers, so that's what confuses me on the white one. These birds are 9-10 weeks old.

The red one please... apologies for the poor lighting, its making her look demonic.

The other red one

And the big one in the middle.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The red one appears to be a New Hampshire Red, but if she has a beard...

The white one in the second photo appears to be a White Leghorn.

The closest white one in the third photo looks to be a White Leghorn while the one in the back looks to be a White Plymouth Rock, but if it has a rose comb instead of a single, I'd guess Wyandotte.

1st pic. Black Australorp, and New Hampshire Pullets 2nd looks to be a production red or red sex-link type 3rd white leghorn and White rock pullets.

If the white ones have red earlobes, then they are brown egglayers - probably white rocks. The pullet in the bottom pic seems to be larger and has much thicker legs then the rooster next to it. It might be a cornish X.

Yeaah, I kinda thought might be A broiler cross, but in a brown egg pack? and I guess there really shouldn't be a leghorn either much less a male. Lets see some more guesses I love doing this.

No no, you are correct, the little white ones are indeed leghorns, I was just asking about the two red ones, and the big white one. Thanks

ETA: The larger pullet in the bottom is actually 2 weeks older than the leghorn next to it as well, so that might help clear up the size difference.

I whole-heartedly disagree with the Cornish Rock. The legs would be much thicker, head would be much wider and the bird would probably already be having issues walking.

Sorry - I thought they were ALL supposed to be brown egg layers and were all the same age. Looking back, I see that you only asked about 3 chickens.

If the big white one acts just like your other chickens and is able to roost with them than it is probably a white rock and not a cornish X - but if it is lazier than the other chickens and tends to eat way more than they do, it may be a cornish cross.
