The barred chicken is Pingu.
I think Pingu is male but I.m not sure what breed.
If female: Barred Rock or Barred Holland
If male: Black sex-linked rooster (single barred)
Probably Barred Plymouth Rock or Cuckoo Marans cockerel.
Cuckoo Marans have white legs, this one is yellow (only way I could tell my Cuckoo Marans from my Barred Holland's when they were younger). It is single barred which makes it a mix-breed, if it is male. Most likely black sex-link male (RIR rooster x Barred Rock hen).
If it is a male you could cross him with a RIR hen then do some selective breeding to get a Rhodebar (red-barred chicken). It is one of my future projects.
This is Tilly who I'm fairly sure is a Leghorn and fairly sure is a cockerel
All birds pictured look to be cockerels.
Pingu is a mixed breed. One barred or cuckoo parent, the other looks to maybe have been silver unless he has red leakage coming through.
I agree about Pingu. The white one is not a white leghorn and seems to be a cockerel also.
