    Can't quite tell comb from the picture, If the first one has a rose comb maybe Columbian Wyandotte
    Second looks like a Blue Ameraucana
    Third Black Andalusian looks like a light breed bird?, or maybe Jersey Giant if bigger than it looks in the picture.

    First looks to have a single comb so might be a delaware, second might be a blue ameraucana but probably a blue ee, on the third one I think I see yellow feet bottoms so I would go with a jersey giant.

    I agree with Kelsie2290's guesses. I think the first bird is a Delaware or a Columbian Rock.

    The first bird is a mix, if it was a Rock, Wyandotte, Delaware or even a Leghorn (Columbian pattern) it would have Yellow shanks/legs. That first bird has green shanks/legs.

    Actually, I think that is lighting -- if you notice, the legs are much more in shadow in the photos of the first bird than the other two, and I see shading, not green legs.

    Very new to this, but I'll take a gander ... wait that's a different bird ?!?

    The first one, although looks similar to a Delaware I don't think it is. I have three 5 week old D's and they all have more black specks on their backs and necks. The heads/knecks do not look quite the same shape and they do not have yellow feet. The others look exactly like my Blue Andalusians. I have two greys and one black and they are almost a perfect match to these.

    Again ... very, very new here!
