I am pretty sure the oreos are Hamburg bantams, the lighter three might be red sex links or comets?! I am unsure about the two black chickens and the other greyish brown chicken in the back.

Thanks for the replies.

What colored eggs do each lay?

We just got these hens yesterday. So far they have laid a small brown egg, a large brown and medium white egg.

The Sex Links and Production cross will lay brown eggs.
Your Minorca, Hamburgs, and Leghorn will be laying white eggs.

Generally:
White earlobes mean white eggs. (Sometimes they will lay lightly tinted eggs too)
Red earlobes mean brown eggs.
This works for most breeds of chickens, but not all.

Black one with white earlobes could be either Andalusion or Minorca. The so called "Oreo" ones look to be Silver Spangled Hamburgs.

The hen in the center is just simply a Production Red, Sometimes they just turn out that way I think from the New Hampshire blood in them.
