    There are 4 different types. Leghorns seem obvious. There's also a light tan solid color, the black speckled, and the tan/mix colored.
    Thanks

    I think the 1 in front in the first pic looks like a New Hampshire. Also looks like you have some Barred Plymouth Rocks (the black ones with white). IDK about the others.

    BLACK chicks-----> The black chick on the right hand side of the first pic is an Australorp. The rest of the black chicks that I can see are Barred Rocks or Black Sexlink males (white spot on the top of their heads).

    BLOND chicks-----> Buff Orpingtons.

    RED chicks-----> Could be New Hampshires or Rhode Island Reds.

    WHITE chicks-----> Could be White Leghorns, White Rocks... There's lot's of white breeds!

    Thanks for the help. It's fun not knowing for sure what is what. Chicken math is really something. Last fall I'd never had chickens before. First it was 7 hens, then a batch of meaties, then more hens, now with these guys there are 52 birds running around here. Serious fun.
