    White with black neck and tail is Light Sussex, Next to her barred one is Silver Barred Marans,White one with brown spots on wings is Sex Link,Blue one on Bottom is a English commercial high breed, i forgot the name.Golden neck one is a Brown Leghorn ( I see the white earlobes and the body type). If they are talking brown eggs,this means Welsummer who looks similar to Brown Leghorn but lays brown eggs. Last one is Black Sex Link, or Black Rock -like they call them in England. Hope I helped.

    That is an Amberlink, but it is not a sexlink chiicken.
    It is the reverse of a sexlink. Silver rooster over red hen.
    Sexlink would be Red rooster over silver hen.
