    The top pic is a Speckled Sussex. I have a lot full of them right now. The second looks like a Silver Leghorn but its hard to tell since her head is turned away. If her comb is straight, that would be my bet.

    First one is a Speckled Sussex and I agree it looks like a roo...esp its tail. Not sure on the other one.

    The silver one looks like a phoenix based on the leg color.
