They're a bit young and we could help with some more photos but RIGHT NOW go complain the guy/girl who sold you the "Welsummer" Eggs! These are Not Welsummers XD

They're not even the same breed as each other, so really who knows? the top on the left kinda made me think of a gold laced Wyandotte, but it's got dark skin so that's not right. The black chick is going to be something black---not a big help there, right?

 

I'd e-mail pics to the seller and ask what they are, and get a refund. Not so much cause of a poor hatch rate, that's just a risk with shipped eggs. But you paid for Wellies and those ain't them :rolleyes:
