    Would need to know if they are feather-footed or not.

    They are all supposed to be regular size chickens and brown egg layers. None have any feathers on their legs. The white ones have very small combs.

    OK large fowl brown egg layers. Got it.

    So my guess is: if your white ones have yellow legs may be White Rocks, barred ones probably Barred Rocks, and the red ones might be Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire Red (I am not sure).

    These are guesses. Very cute!

    I'd be suspicious for the red chick on the end to possibly be a rooster. That's a fair amount of comb.

    The red birds are hatchery Rhode Island reds or production reds
    The white birds are probably white Rocks.
    The barred birds are likely barred Rocks, could possibly be cuckoo Marans if they have white legs.

    What type of comb do the white ones have? If you don't know, could you post a close-up photo of the head? If they have a single comb, they're probably White Rocks. If they have a rosecomb, then they're probably White Wyandottes. The red birds are production-type Rhode Island Reds, and the Barred birds are probably Barred Plymouth Rocks. They're all very cute!
