    The first white hen has yellow-ish color towards her tail feathers, is that dirt or color? And her legs aren't yellow like the leghorn color, I might be wrong but I'm going mixed and the Roo in the first pics is a EE for sure. The blue pair = Hen looks to be a blue Aussie The Roo looks maybe Blue mix, bottom looks like a blue roo as well. Better pics would help out tremendously [​IMG]

    I think your white birds very well could be hatch mates. They're cross breeds with some silkie probably 2 generations back. The hen's not quite right for a pure leghorn and the roo really looks like a silkie mix.The silkie characteristics just show up different on the different birds.

    Your colored roo isn't an Austrlorp.

    I don't know much about non-black Aussies, so can't really help you out there.

    ok so the man who sold the white pair to me told me the rooster is a white americauna and that is what they breed im assuming ee cause i dont think he is full but maybe im wrong however they also informed me that the hen never sits so huh she may be getting replaced havent made my mind up yet anyway they are my kids to make money with so it will be a decision we make together lol. i will try to get a better pic of my australorps the rooster is black australorp and ee cross just showed the seller a pic of them since we got them as chicks and she confirmed my suspicion i know they are huge now and like big pets. thanks everyone for your input.[​IMG]

    The white hen looks like a White Leghorn, the cock looks like a Silkie mix. Your other chickens look like mixes to me.
