    I just got these last night... 6 Hens and 1 rooster... They were advertised free on a board I go to, so I snatched them up. They are 2 years old (some younger). My guess on the breeds are:

    Rooster: RIR
    3 yellow hens... Buff Orps????????
    1 White Hen... ?????
    Black Hen... Black Austrolorp????
    Speckled hen....?????

    I think your gold hens are Buff Orpingtons...here's a picture of mine that I got from Murray McMurray hatchery. In this pic they are around 20 weeks old (i think)...

    I'm no expert but my maybe guess for the speckled hen could be an EE?

    I don't think the white one is a cornish/rock. I would think it would be bigger and have thicker legs. Could be a white rock or mix. The white and black one is a mix, of what I'm not sure. The buffs could be orpingtons, the roo could be RIR, or maybe a production red. It would help if you could get closer full body shots of each bird.

    Thank you all.. I will try to get better shots of them today, we just finished building them a run so they can get out of the chicken coop, so I will try to get better ones. Here is one of the speckled one that I took with my cellphone while we were clipping wings... maybe you can tell more on that one.

    I think you're right on the ones you guessed--RIR, buff Orp and Aussie.
    Your white hen looks to be a white Rock and your grey and white girl is probably an Easter egger.

    Great find!

    Well my ladies are laying now... I do know the Buffs are laying, and the egg in the middle is from the Black/white speckled hen... so is she an EE?? The egg in the middle is a blueish green color.
