    So these are are 6+ weeks, I have no idea on breed other than the all black with fluffy feet might be Cochin or maran mix.
    I have 2 grays, the black with white chest, and the black and white speckled.
    All of them have some feet feathers. Some more than others.
    The grays and soeckled have puffy cheeks.
    Any guesses?

    Yellow skin rules out Marans. Probably Easter Egger/Cochin mixes.

    The grey one with the beard may be an EE or an ameraucana?
    The striped one maybe a BR or domonique? Really no idea on the other ones. Good luck!

    None have rose combs, so no Dominique. And if one parent was a Barred Rock, the other parent must have been both muffed and feather legged. The breeds with those features also have other dominant traits that would also express.
    Cochin/Easter Egger mixes is the only possibility that actually fits all the characteristics expressed. Barred Cochins are available at a few hatcheries.
