    first picture, white/black far left top, is a rooster i believe, light brahma, one to the right.. looks like a hen. dark brahma? one beside that is a EE, cant tell whether rooster/hen but the color resembles a rooster, infront of the dark hen is a Barred rock (or looks like it )Rooster, next to him is a Broiler (white bird), Aka.. meat chicken. infront of it is a EE (rooster). and then to the left of the barred rock is another EE (hen) .. and behind it a australorp? rooster, second picture.. cant really tell but the blacks all look like australorps or jersey giants. the fat white ones are meat birds

    I see Barred Rocks, Easter Eggers and Australorps. And definitely one Aussie roo in there.

    Can you get better photos?

    I bought straight run from a breeder. Pretty close to half and half. 17 hens, 12 roos.

  10. I thnk your white birds may be White Plymouth rocks and i agree with the Aussie roo. The black ones, I do not think they are Jersey Giants. There is a barred rock. The rest, I do not know, but they sure are pretty ones.
