    Here's what I think, though I may be wrong - Starting at the top from left to right: Delaware, have no idea what that one is, Brown Leghorn, (maybe Andalusian? But no white earlobes... maybe a skinny Blue Orpington [​IMG]) some sort of sexlink, and Plymouth Rock. All of those would lay brown eggs except the leghorn. I don't think the leghorn-looking one is a Welsummer because it has white earlobes. The blue one looks like an Andalusian but is has red ear lobes...

    Clockwise from top. 1-could be Delaware or Columbian Plymouth Rock. 2- Barred Plymouth Rock. 3- not sure maybe Amber link or some other production cross. 4- some kinda blue, maybe Delaware Blue. 5- Brown Leghorn (white egg layer). 6- Black Sex link (or Black Star), but could be some other production cross. From the pic the color looks more like Birchen color.

    The top on eis definitely NOT a Delaware. It's a Columbian colored bird, Delawares are not Columbian colored, they should have barred feathers on their necks, roos have barred tailed, hens black. Next is a barred rock, then I'm not sure what that is colored like a male red sexlink, maybe a tetra tint or Amberlink? Next (clockwise) I have no idea what the blue one is, then brown Leghorn, then Rhode Island Red.

    The "black" bird is a black sex link.

    Going clockwise, it's a columbian rock. It has yellow legs and a single comb, it's the only breed that fits. Wyandottes have rose combs and sussex have pink/white shanks. Delawares black markings on the tail and hackles are barred, this bird is a true columbian color.

    Barred rock.

    Amber link.

    I'm going to guess blue plymouth rock. It is not an andalusian since it's earlobes are red and it's comb isn't floppy. It's not an Iowa Blue as they are birchen in color. It's too thin and small for an Orpington.

    Brown leghorn.

    If they are supposed to be brown egg layers, the white earlobes one could be a Pendenesca. They are the only white ear lobed brown egg layer that I know of.
    I have no clue what the wheaten colored one on the lower right-handed corner is. Maybe some sort of hatchery hybrid? Where did this template come from?
