    They're adorable. I'd bet they are Runners, but I'm not good at identifying colors.

    Check out these cuties! Am I right about the breed and any idea on color?

    Too much color to be anconas but could certainly be crosses.
    Pekins crossed with swedish tend to have darker spotted markings like that

    Holy cuteness! They could be anything, really. They are standing tall which indicates runner, but they don't quite have the runner shape. I was thinking like learycow, Pekin/black Swedish mix? White runner/black Swedish? The white on them almost looks more like an oversized bib than random spotting. But they're so slender! They look like they have at least a little runner in them. Could be Heinz 57's. Cute little 'lings!

    Not an expert but the third one looks like my Khaki Campbell when I first got it. The second one looks like some black swedish I have seen on the boards but never seen any like the first. They are really cute!

    First looks like a magpie, second a Swedish and 3rd a KC. I can't wait to see what they look like when they get older. Very cute.

    My guesses are (starting from top going clockwise) Pekin, Khaki Campbell, Black Swedish, Magpie.
