    Pictures 4-5 look like a barred plymouth rock. Number 6 looks like your EE, but I can't be certain.

    Hen in picture 2 looks like a Game Hen (American Game probably) Picture 4-5 a Barred Rock. Picture 6 EE or Ameraucana. Picture 7 maybe a Leghorn or a Game hen.

    The black and whit striped ones are Barred Plymouth Rocks. The whit chicken in the picture with a barred rock and another white chicken is an easter egger. The other white one is a white leghorn. The roster looks like a mix of rode island red and something else. and the other hens look like a buff orphington mixed with rode island red.

    I agree your rooster looks like Marans, I think they say that is the model for the old rooster picture on cornflakes...if not that breed, then the cornflakes model rooster.

    If one of your barred (black and white) is an EE, then it is the one with the small comb -- if they are the same age....I guess that would mean a barred daddy and an EE mother. The other B&W looks like barred plymouth rock. The last one, I vote Leghorn too, or a leghorn cross, the rest, especially the white one in the second to last--EE. (except the one people are saying looks like American game hen I agree). I guess if you get green or blue eggs---you know for sure EE.

    I agree with most everybody on the hens yet the rooster cant b a maran because marans have feathers on outside of their legs all the way to the toe. He looks just like a maran every way else though, so maybe he is just featherless on legs. CAN B POSSIBLE I SUPPOSE.
