    the edge of insanity
    2nd picture down is a Red star rooster (the one that is mainly white).

    The pic of the two walking/running must be either Easter Eggers (probably) or americaunas. (bearded/muffed ones)

    I thought the guy in picture 4 was a red star rooster. Are they not more colorful. THis white guy is already destinted for the pot after pecking a piece of my hubby's leg out.

    The last one is a Silver Phoenix hen. You have a red sexlink rooster (white with red in the wing area).

    The Buff Orpington on the ladder is a rooster. I think I see a Welsummer hen (Brown Leghorns look similar, but have white earlobes, while Wellies have red) in the first picture. Also, a Brown Leghorn. Maybe a Production RIR type in there, too. There are two beautiful Easter Egger hens (with beards). The one with lots of blue in her feathers looks like the twin sister to my June.

    again thanks so much you were a big help I just hope you are wrong about the buff orpington being a rooster. I ordered 25 hens and one red star rooster and so far I have two red sexlinked roosters for sure and then maybe two welsummer roosters I really don't need or want anymore. lol
