    Moved to what breed or gender is this for more possible views.

    The black ones look like black australops to me, the golden ones look like red sexlinks (the white in the tail saying so), and the white one looks like a cali white. However, are those green feet on the white one? If so I say it is a leghorn, or cali white type mix with EE.

    the black ones are (most likely) Back Australorps. the Reddish/brown might be either Buff Orpingtons or maybe Nem Hampshire Reds. I have no idea what the white and black one is. [​IMG]

    The red ones are definitely red sexlinks. The black ones could either be jersey giants or black australorps. They can be difficult to tell apart. The white one in the front looks like a california white. I'm pretty sure that is what they are called. May be a mix too. I always love the spots!
