    My guesses:

    1. looks like a cornish x meat bird to me
    2. EEs - not sure whether hen or roo
    3. possible roos - their combs are a lot bigger than my 3 mo. old barred rock pullets (how old are your chicks?)
    4. can't see them very well - are they production reds or rhode island reds?
    5. roo - no idea what kind
    6. australorp? she has a greenish tinge to her feathers
    7. probable roo - large comb (depending on age, but your chickens look young to me - maybe 2 mo?)
    8. barred rock hen & ??

    edited because I mixed up #5 & #7

    ~ 11 weeks of age

    Mcmurray heavy straight run assortment.

    Not supposed to be any meaties, but there were 5 whites that grew faster, but have leveled off. They do perch on the lowest perch, but do not really fly.

    Mine are the same age - 12 weeks. Here's a photo of my 2 barred rocks, an easter egger, & a production red (all pullets) - I went out and took this photo about 20 minutes ago, so that you can compare combs of chickens the same age as yours.

    That white one is possibly a slow growing cornish X (14-16 week butcher instead of 8-10)
    The black are black australorps (great layers!) and they do look like hens to me
    The multi-color looks EE to me...Not sure about the barred rocks. They do not SCREAM roo to me, might need a better picture.

    1 - White Giant - All mine had very big combs at this age. The rooster was quite obvious by then so I think you might have a hen there.
    2 - Columbian Wyandotte - If her tail feathers are barely there at this point and are blacke with white tips. They have very round bodies. SO cute. We kept calling them rumpless (we have 3). Their tail feathers didn't really start appearing until 5 months old.
