    That's what I was guessing for penguin, I had a rooster who looked about the same when he was that age.

    1) what color are the legs? Kind of looks like a white EE, but she could be a leghorn, white rock, etc.
    2) probably a black australorp
    3) most likely a production red, although those wings have me thinking there's a possibility of a speckled sussex
    4) easter egger

    Butter: Easter Egger, or possibly a White Ameraucana
    Penguin: Probably a Black Australorp, though it could also be several other black breeds (Jersey Giant, Orpington, etc.). It should become easier to tell as it gets older.
    Ginger: Production Red
    Gizmo: Not sure. What type of comb does it have? Might be another Easter Egger.

    Butter looks like an Easter Egger. Penguin is probably a Black Australorp. Ginger I think is a "production red". Gizmo, to me, also looks like an Easter Egger.

    Does Butter have feathered legs and/or five toes? That would point toward Faverolles.

    Thanks everybody, Butter has yellowish legs and four toes. So far Gizmo has a very small light colored comb.
