    true Rhode Islands Whites have rose combs only and very hard to find, so your white bird is probably a white rock or white orpington since she has white legs. Has her legs ever been yellow, like before she started laying or after the fall molt?

    Agree about the white bird not being a RI, and she looks way more like a Rock than an Orpington. The others are red and black sex links, as you guessed. Nice flock!
