All of theses chicks were purchased at a feed store,the employee there said they were a week old when I bought them 3 weeks ago and that the bins were a 75/25 mix of female/male.No help at all on the breeds howeverūüė° so I am turning to you guys to see if anyone can tell me what breeds I have.Any help is greatly appreciated! !TIA

Cute babies! So I'm not sure on the black ones, but in the group photo by the feeder there are two yellowish chicks.  The feathers coming in are tanish.  Those are definitely Easter Eggers.  Also the one pic with the chick with the white head is a roo.

The girls:

Easter Eggers-Coconut, Gold n' Plump, Stir Fry

Australorps-Curry, Minnie, Kung Poa, Blossom

I can see a Gold Laced Wyandotte - second row, far right.  That's as much help as I can be.  The first one looks like a barred/cuckoo something.  The only breed I know is the Barred Rock (I'm in New Zealand and we don't have the variety of breeds available overseas).  Hopefully someone else has some ideas.  Your little cockerel is a stunner, but I have no idea what he could be.

Your first one might be a Dominique - it looks to have more of a rose comb than a single comb.  Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I just came across a picture of one as I was searching for a comparison of bantam and standard breed chicks on Google Images.  I have a very broody bantam who I am hoping will adopt some newly hatched Orpington chicks that we are picking up on Friday, but I've only hatched bantam chicks before so I have no concept of how big a standard sized chick is.  And there was a photo of a gorgeous looking Dominique and I immediately thought of your chick.

 

Chickens - be warned - it's a sickness!!!  The only treatment (for there is no cure) is MORE!

The Barred one looks like a Dominique (looks like a rosecomb but if it has a single comb it could be a BR), the next one looks like some type of bantam (probably an OEG) also looks like a cockerel, after that one looks like an Easter Egger, then the black and gold one looks like a Gold Laced Sebright bantam (Wyandottes have yellow legs this chick has green/grey).
