It is very possible the these other chicks are males. Hatcheries sometimes get the genders wrong. However, it could just be that these chicks are maturing faster, as females. You can't be 100% sure until they are fully mature, unfortunately.

Once they are older, you can post pics of them here https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this and we can help you sex them.

Until then, have fun with your chicks!
