They are adorable! Do you know what breed that all black one is? I just got my order from Cackle this week and I have one that looks exactly like your little all black one. I have no clue what it is as I ordered the Hatchery Choice Pullet Special.

Do you have a standard in one of the pictures? Otherwise you've got one Godzilla bantam.

That little one is a silkie.  I also have a black cochin and a black sexlink (but the picture is the silkie).

Here is an update on the chicks.

Some of them found homes but i still have a ton of them. (who could part with this frizzle!?)

This is a good pic of some of my 'top hat special' and a few silkies.  The EE's were from a local feed store.

P1170268.JPG

The brooder i had couldn't hold as many chicks as i wanted to keep so i built one out of home depot boxes and tape.

 It works really well and was SUPER cheap!

P1170270.JPG

I actually have them in my P.O.D. because my shed wasn't big enough for them to be happy. = P

I have a few that i still don't know what they are, i will have pics coming shortly.

We have a frizzle like that but frizzler, the stronger the gene is the frizzler it is, yours is pretty strong but ours is one of the strongest it can be (i think)
