Which breeds do I have here? Help!!

I'm just starting out with chickens and I am not sure what these two hens are.

EE (easter egger), lay a blue, green or pinkish egg. But they might be barnyard mix with some EE.

Left is probably some sort of a black sexlink, but it could have some EE in that mix.

 

Right is a silver laced Wyandotte. Neither are going to be exhibition birds, but are probably ideal if you're interested in egg layers. :)

Yes we want layers, we have 17 chickens total. I purchased the mcmurry hatchery brown egg layer bundle. I was able to identify our other hens.

I'd agree on a bsl and a slw, both pullets.

the first one is a black sex-linked pullet i think. the second might be an easter egger

Oh my, that is not a SLW. To call it one is a crime upon the breed IMO, I might agree that the black and brown one is a sexlink if it came from a hatchery.  But considering they both probably came from a local seller they are most likely barnyard mixes.
