Here's the options from the website:

Black Australorps; Lt. Brahmas; Dark Cornish; Black and White Giants; Buff and White Orpingtons; New Hampshire, Rhode Island Reds, Barred, White, Columbian, Partridge, Buff Rocks; Sussex, Turkens; White, Silver Laced, & Columbian Wyandottes, Red Star and Black Star

 

Here's my flock: 26 birds 11 days old. If I have an idea I marked it.

#2

#3

#4 - Bhrama?

#5

#6 Bhrama?

#7

#8 Jersey Giant?

#9

#10 Bhrama?

#11

#12

#13

#14 - not photogenic

#15 - black polish - mystery breed

#16

#17

#19

#20

#21

#22

Pretty much all your Buff chicks (#1, #3, #5, #7, #11, #16, #18, #20, #22, #24, #26) are going to be either Buff Orpingtons or Buff Rocks. As they grow the Rocks will retain yellow legs while the Orps will have pink ones. #26 does have a tad more red so maybe NH or RSL on that one:

#2 looks like a Partridge Rock. #4, #6, and #10 are almost certainly Brahmas, but they look Dark, not Light. #12 and #23 are probably Silver Laced. #13, #17, #19, and #21 appear to be Dark Cornish. I agree #8 and #25 look like White Giants. #14 is blurry.
