    My dad got these at tractor supply last year and they are beautiful i just wish i knew what kind they were. Im only interested in knowing about the white hen and roosters i know what the red ones are.

    The first rooster looks like an Exchequer Leghorn cross? Or maybe a Splash Andalusian with red leakage.

    I can't see the white hen's comb, but it doesn't look like a single comb, so I'm not sure what breed she is. She is definitely Splash in color as well. Slate legs, white earlobe... I'm sure there's an obvious answer here.

    The second rooster looks like a Delaware, though his legs are a little pink.

    I tend to agree with the other poster...Andalusian mixes for the top two and Delaware for the bottom roo.

    I wonder if there is some EE mixed with the Andalusian maybe? Does the Andalusian looking female have a pea comb? That might explain the red barring in the male and the pea comb in the female....or they could be simply not even be from the same original bins as it is hatchery stock...you can get surprises definitely from that.
