    Here's a few more to ponder on!

    I'm suspecting Leghorn? Though I have few that are the same color and larger. I noticed some having feathers that look a little ruffly and some with sparse black dots here and there.

    Buff Orpington?

    Barred Rock? These are feisty!

    RIR? She is very red, I named her Victoria after the redheaded vamp on Twilight!

    1) Looks like a leghorn to me
    2) Not buff orp - not solid enough. Not sure what though...
    3) Barred rocks - for sure
    4) ?? Not RIR though

    I would guess 2 is maybe a NH with light coloring

    the BR is a boy

    and the last one is a partridge rock maybe? not a RIR

    Maybe an EE? I see what I think is a beard, no? It's not a RIR.

    I would be truly guessing on all-except for #2....I REALLY think it is a New Hampshire Red. It looks exactly like the three I had as 1-3 day old chicks....

    What are the main differences in New Hampshire Reds and RIRs?

    They are actually just called New Hampshires, not New Hampshire reds. they are a lovely orangey color with some black in the tail feathers compared to the RIR's darker reds with greens.

    and since you mentioned the puffy cheeks I change my vote on the little last one to a EE.
