    I think I can see red sex link hens, maybe a Welsummer or two. Other than that, need better pics.

    I see a lot of mixed breed birds and several roosters. The "sex links" look to be second generation as at least one of them is a rooster.
    first pic--mixed breed rooster, poss easter egger hen
    second pic--mixed breed hens and second gen sex link rooster
    third pic--at least 4 roosters, 2 red and black and 2 red and white.
    fourth pic--hatchery quality buff orp hen, maybe a hatchery quality silver penciled rock hen.

    The funny thing is I kid you not, the buff orphington in the last picture laid eggs for most of her life, then started crowing this year! I even have it on video!
    Thank you!
