    Here are my guesses, Listed in order of pix:

    Crested:
    Crevecoeur
    Silver Polish
    White crested Black/Blue Polish
    Mottled Houdan
    Gold Polish?

    As for Silkies:
    Blue
    Black
    Red (Maybe a dark Buff) Whatever color it doesn't look like it's going to have a good crest.

    Unknown:
    Sultan
    Light Brahma? (I agree with danischi24: It could be a Cochin)
    The last one almost looks like a Porcelain d'Uccles chick?

    Ok thanks guys, I'll post some pics of the undecided when they get a little older. I've never seen an all black Polish before are the pretty or just kind of plain looking. Thanks for the IDs and guesses.

    Black Polish are very stuning, but if you got them from a hatchery that's 99 out of 100 not what it is.

    My guess if they are hatchery birds is a Crevecoeur
    http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGA/Creve/BRKCreve.html

    I would look on the site you got them from to see what breeds they have or if you got them from a breeder S/He should know what they sent you, so just ask.

    Can't wait to see them a little older.

    I just realized I didn’t post a pic of the little chick, but I also have a very light yellow polish chick no other markings just a soild color, no feather legs, fuzzy head, and only four toes so I assume it’s a polish. What color would that chick be considered.

    That is a very close match, it must be a buff then, I was thinking white but I’d never seen a white polish so I was doubting myself. But I didn’t know I’d never seen a black polish either. Thanks. They came from welp hatchery, I split an order with someone and I let them handle everything. I just wanted some polish and a few silkies I don’t know what else he ordered.

    Ok so I was just looking at the number 4 chick (black and white chick) and I realized it has 5 toes like a silkie...I'm sure its not a silkie. I have another chick with the same markings. They also have one black mark under one eye and two black spots on the top of the head. What are these chicks can polish have 5 toes and if not what are the odds of getting two chicks with this fault.
