    The first one looks like a buff orpington and the second a barred rock.

    The first look rather like commercial reds, although there is no variation in brown to buff, so not 100% sure. Commercial pullets are typically a red sex link.

    The black ones look like the "mystery" TSC blend of black commercial pullet discussed here by many of us. We are not 100% sure just what exotic blend went into this black commercial chick. One BYC member got an email from the hatchery stating it is "something" mated to a Black Australorp. Hmmmmm.... We are all just sort of waiting this out.

    I was following that thread as well because my chicks look similar. Even to the white dots on the head. The yellow chicks did have chipmunk type stripes on the back but they have faded quite a bit.​

    The yellow ones in the first pic look similar to one of ours. We were told by the feed store guy that it was a "gold sex-link" but after some searching I'm not really sure...
