    I had thought that the darker speckled was a Lakenfelder and the two graysih speckled were silver spang ham but now I am not sure?

    I can't really tell a lot about them by your pictures. 1 looks like a splash easteregger cockerel. 2 is splash too but I don't know what. 3 appears to be a silver spangled hamburg hen and 4 looks like a splash cochin cockerel.

    How old are they? If they're atleast 6 months old, I think they all look like hens. I love splash chickens- the first of the two that you have is an EE/Ameraucana. #3 looks like Silver Spangled Hamburg, #4 a Splash Cochin.

    I see a black silkie & a couple that look like silkie crosses, based upon what I've seen in my own flock with crosses (the two whites in the last photo, and possibly the spash in earlier photos). There's also a buff silkie, a white crested black polish, a silver spangled hamburg & a barred something (need to see comb to tell if a rock, dominique or something else).
