    Most of them look like Easter Eggers to me, but some of the pictures make it a bit hard to tell.

    if you want the pics bigger when you are creating your post there are two image codes you can choose from, choose the bottom one and simply copy and paste it into your post. I learned by fooling around with it.

    Sorry I cant tell you what kind they are I am a total newbie to Chickens!

    first one looks easter egger. Second in black sex-link. Can't tell the next two pics but the last one looks like a silver laced wyandotte rooster.

    edited--in the third pic, the dark bird with the muffs, does she have feathered legs? Hard to tell in the pic.

    The black with white spots chickens in #4 look like anconas, but they are not bantams, just smaller chickens. There are other breeds that look like them such as mottled javas, but they are big. Maybe someone else can solve the mystery.
