What breed are my chicks? Maybe Buff Orpington?

My hubby surprised me with these little ladies. I'm so excited! What breed do you think they might be? Maybe a Buff Orpington in there? What do you think?
To early to tell?

I think you have Buff Orpingtons and Barred Rock

The black one is a Black Australorp, one of the red ones looks like it maybe a Red sex-link, the other two maybe Buff Orpingtons but I don't think so.

It's hard to see in the pictures but one of the yellow chicks has very light reddish chipmunk markings. The other two have a uniform tan color. Does that make a difference?

IDK, it also looks like the two solid colored ones are getting new feathers that are about the same solid color, so I think there's a decent chance they are buff orpingtons.  Production reds usually get their first feathers with a pattern on them and sex links usually white, so my guess would be buffs on those two.

:hu 

 

Edit: I do agree with the others being a red sex link and an Australorp.  A barred rock would have a white spot on its head.

Yes the two tan ones have feathers that are the same solid color coming in. There isn't a spot on the black ones head. the one with chipmunk markings has tan and white stripes on her feathers.
