    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join to our flock. Does it have a whitish or yellowish spot on top of its head? It's difficult to tell in the red heat lamp. If it does, it's a Barred Rock chick. If not, it could be a Black Australorp or a Black Sex Link chick. A better pic in normal lighting would help. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Congratulations on your hatch.

    Hello, and welcome to BYC![​IMG] I'm glad you joined our community.

    I think that its possible that some of your chicks are mixed breeds. The black ones with white spots on their heads are probably Barred Plymouth Rocks, but the one with 5 toes looks like a mix.
