    I'm asking about the black ones. they all have white spots on their heads except one who has red around her eyes. They also have white bellies and bums and yellow legs with a black stripe going down the front of their legs. Some of their stripes are darker than others. also their wing feathers seem to be coming in white.

    Only the one pic came through, but what you're describing is a barred chick. Rocks are the most common breed in that color, but they could also be Dominiques, depending on the comb. Not many other barred, clean legged, yellow skinned birds.

    Yes, I looked up barred rock and that's exactly what they look like. Thank you so much! I also heard that with the yellow ones, it's pretty much a surprise as so many breeds are yellow as chicks. Is this correct?

    Several breeds can be yellow, yes. Looks like they're feathering in white, so could be Leghorns, or Rocks as the most common. There are also several Leghorn based hybrids they could be--Amberlinks, Tetra Tints, etc. You'll just have to wait until they're about 6 weeks to see for sure.
