    The hen is an Easter Egger, so is the chick. The bird in the last picture is definitely a cockerel.

    The legs are grey on the hen and the chick

    I would say the hen is a Nankin/Buff Brahma cross. Since the legs are greyish/blue (thats a characteristic of Nankins) and the hen has the black...lacing (?) like the BB, I would say cross.

    the last looks like a cockerel but a full body shot would help with that. the hen in the first pic looks like an ee with that beard it has and i would bet that they chick on her back is also an ee with its beard. as for the middle one can you get a shot of the head were the comb is supposed to be?
