    The "rainbow" assortment would be the eggs,not the chickens.

    Looks like you got bared rocks,white leghorns,ee's (brown/black),there is a partridge rock in there,and an american grey gamehen.

    Eggs you will get: white,offwhite,pink,brown,green or blue. Rainbow assortment.

    fyi, the american grey gamehen is the one that is smaller than the rest with light brown and white feathers on its tummy.I know because I have one of my own.Great layers,mothers.

    Looks like you have some leghorn roos cus of those tail feathers protruding far out.

    Quote:The smallest one right of which picture there are 3 pictures?

    There is no, "american grey game hen" in the pictures I see.
    The breed is American Gamefowl the "variety" is Grey. Hatcheries don't sell American Gamefowl.

    I see white leghorns, barred rocks, gold laced wyandotte, cochins, a campine (I think. The head is cut off on the picture), there might be a bad faverolle.

    Better pictures would help.

    that tan one in the middle of the last picture looks like a faverolle,there are probably some EEs in there also.

    An EE is an Easter Egger, a cross breed chicken that can lay a blue or green tinted egg. They usually have beards and muffs and green legs, but because they are crosses sometimes they don't. Hatcheries call them Americanas. I don't see any EEs in the pictures. In the first photo there is a hen with gold neck and black and brown barred body that looks like a Buttercup hen. The one in the middle on the bottom pic is a Faverolle hen. I do see one that looks like a rooster. Can you get some closer photos?
