    Looks like they are easter eggers or Rhode Island Reds.
    So far I can not be sure if they are male or female but I think you have 6 females and 1 male. The male being Chick 4. But I am not COMPLETLY sure.

    I think chick #1 may be male only because in the pic, his legs appear to be thicker than the other birds' legs. 2 or 3 of them might be EE's but it's hard to tell if the leg color is black or green/slate on some of them, they have the right combs though.

    Where did you get them? Knowing where they came from might narrow down the choices.

    Chicks #3 and #4 looks a bit like Partridge Plymouth Rocks. Chick #7 may be a Black Australorp. Some of the others may be Easter Eggers, but I'm not sure.

    It is too young to tell gender, though I'm not seeing any definite rooster signs.

    1,2 , and 5 look like easter eggers, not sure what 3 and 4 are. Not exactly positive on 6. And 7 looks like a black australorp.

    was a buy/sell/trade. She had soooo many hatch at once she just put them all together and did say there were a few EE in there. She was great. She has 40+ chickens and raises them, sells them etc. And she even have me one that she definitely thought was a rooster, and tried to look at their wings, markings, and feet as well to help get me some hens! So fingers crosses. But it's the first go around and definitely not the last, I'm excited to have whatever. Just preferably one rooster, two max, and we will separate them accordingly.

    I agree with these guesses.
