    Shakespeare ~ ???
    Duplicate ~ silver laced wyandotte (possibly)
    Henriatte ~ gold sex link aka gold comet
    black wings ~ possible delaware
    henry ~ gold sex link aka gold comet
    peppy ~ black australorp
    old yeller ~ possible white rock

    The only roos I see are possibly the last one and black wings. All the rest are girls

    I am 95% positive on the sex links and the australorp and I am thinking that first one is some sort of game breed also female. The delaware might be a different breed but for sure female.

    I don't see any easter eggers there at all. When I referred to game breeds I was meaning OEGB (Old English Game Bantams) but she could be something completely different as I am not versed in OEGBs. All of them (except the roosters of course [​IMG] ) will lay brown eggs. The first one I can't tell what color her earlobes are so not sure on her. She is the only one that is really giving me trouble.

    White earlobes = white eggs
    Red earlobes = brown eggs (with the exception of tinted egg layers such as naked necks, EEs, ameraucanas, araucanas, ect)
