    Yes, they look like black sexlinks. I'm not sure but I think the yellow one is a Rhode Island white or white leghorn

    It's difficult to say with any certainty at this age, but the black ones do appear to be female Black Sex Link chicks, and the yellow one is likely either a White Rock or White Leghorn chick.

    Agreed.

    Their breed should become more obvious as they mature.

    That's true when they are chicks. When they feather out, the males are barred and the females lack the barring.
