    I guess I'm going to go against the flow here.

    You didn't state how old, but I'm going to assume about 3 weeks of age? (Age makes a difference in my guesses)...

    I think the top one and middle one could be roo's as they are showing pink and significant amount of comb already, and the bottom one is a pullet.

    I agree that they are likely Barred Rock, RIR or Production Red, and either a White Rock or White Leghorn...can't see earlobe color yet....white will be Leghorn, red will be Rock.

    Also, the top barring is a bit messy looking to me...maybe just the lighting...but it may be more of a Cuckoo pattern, which means it is something other than a Barred Rock...it could be a Cuckoo Marans (non-leg feathered American type) as it has that more upright stance.

    My thoughts.

    I'm also leaning toward roo on the first two, but that's dependent on age. Please always let us know how old the bird is when you want gender guesses!
    First bird is maybe a bsl, if a rooster.
    Second bird is hatchery RIR, or other generic red bird
    third bird probably a white Rock

    I agree. My first thought when I saw the picture of the 1st bird was that it was a Cuckoo Marans.
