    I'm pretty sure the hens are Welsummer, but not sure about the rooster.

    The rooster is a salmon faverolles, the hens appear to be welsummer, a closer picture would help.

    With those light brown eggs, I'm guessing partridge Rocks. The rooster is definitely a Salmon Faverolle.

    She has a silver Wyandotte, a barnevelder, and two gold comets. Plus the 4 welsummer's. I assumed the eggs were coming from the welsummer's because when I was watching the chickens last weekend they produced 5 eggs in 2-3 days. But all the eggs looked the same.

    Welsummer lay a darker brown egg than those, so do Barnvelders. Wyandotte, and the comets will lay eggs that color.
