    1 White Legorn Bantam, 1 Splash Leghorn Roo? Hard to tell!
    The rest are Light Brahmas.

    You might want to look again yourself.. [​IMG]
    The Blue in the Back looks to have none and the Blue up front has next to none..
    And yes there a Brahma cross also.. If you cross a Light Brahma with a Blue colored bird you will get Blue and Black Columbian pattern.

    If the had White Leghorn in them they should be all White..
    They are a cross of a Light Brahma and some sort of Blue colored breed.

    For Example they might a Light Brahma /Blue Plymouth Rock cross.

    Here is how Blue, Black and Splash work in breeding.

    Blue X Blue = 50% Blue, 25% Black, 25% Splash
    Blue X Splash = 50% Blue, 50% Splash
    Blue X Black = 50% Blue, 50% Black
    Splash X Black = 100% Blue
    Black X Black = 100% Black
    Splash X Splash = 100% Splash
