    I think countryfarmer is right on the RIR.

    I agree with kentuckysilkies pic #2 is a Buff Brahma -right coloring and feathered legs.

    Also agree with pips&peeps that pic #3 is Brown Leghorn.

    And to round it all out I agree with mountain man that the last pic is of an Australorp. Pink under feet rather than yellow indicates a 'lorp rather than a Giant.

    Everybody wins! [​IMG]

    Sorry, I may be hopped up on cough syrup. I have a nasty cold. [​IMG]

    Ohhh... neat. I almost ordered some brown leghorns, so that is cool these look to be them. If number 4 is a black Australorp, I can add her to my little flock of them.

    Sadly, number 5 passed away [​IMG] She was very sweet. I was pretty attached considering the short time I had with her...

    These were supposed to be my packing peaunuts to be rehomed. I was hoping they'd be breeds I didn't have an interest in. Oh well!

    I'm going to break the trend here, but #3 looks a lot like my Sussex and Cornish do at that age.
