    Could be a gold laced Wyandotte

    Yup, sure looks like a young Wyandotte -assuming it's not a cross-breed. If the down is more brown/tan in color then perhaps a Golden Laced. If it's more grey/silver/black then it might lean towards the Silver Laced.

    And correct me if I'm wrong but I believe, these babies of mine are white silkies and barred rocks, and I believe the others are red isa sex link

    I'd agree.
    Your black chick could be an Australorp, Jersey giant, or black sex link. Australorp is probably most likely.

    The black chick I was referring to is in the photo above, has no white head spot, and is most definitely not a barred rock. Rhode island reds do not have white under feathers, those are red sex links.
