    It would be useful to know what other birds the hatchery or breeder sells to make a more accurate guess.
    However,
    The chicks in the first photo looks like they may have some Araucana in them and the second photo sort of look like a non white variety of leghorn.

    What is most likely though, if you bought them as layers in AUS (Unsure if I can check location), is that all the chicks you bought are a cross of Australorp, Isa brown, and Leghorn.

    Interesting!
    I'm in PA. We got them from the Rural King store so I'm not sure which hatchery they came from.

    I feel like the first two maybe EEs, in the 2nd picture the one to the right also looks like an EE. I'm not sure on the other one though.
