    Hello,
    I already spend a lot of time to figure out what kinds of breeds they are.
    But I still feel confusion about recognition of these chicks.
    Hopefully you can help me to find the answer.
    Thank you.

    Can you get better pics? They don't enlarge when I click them so I can't see any detail.

    Are the breeds in the title the choices we have? Cause those breeds look pretty different as chicks. Barred Rocks are black with white underbellies and white spots on the head, yellow legs and straight comb. Aussies are black on top, white on bottom, no head spot, and often dark legs and straight comb. Blue wyandottes aren't as dark, blue as opposed to black, and have rose combs. From the pic I'm thinking the bottom bird is a Wyandotte from the looks of the comb.

    I agree with donrae's guesses, and I can't get the pics to enlarge either.

    From the photos, it looks like all the chicks are Blue Wyandottes.

    They all look like Blue Wyandottes to me, too.

    Me, too, and that red-combed one is a cockerel.
