    Both Orp chicks look black to me. Mystery chicks could be red sex links.

    In the first pic, is that tiny chick the one you're thinking is blue? It looks splash to me (still "blue" though) ;)

    The yellow-ish chicks could be buff Orps, or they could be something else. The black chick in the second pic could be any number of breeds (Austrolorp, Orp, Jersey Giant, and on and on), unless its the same chick in the first pic, then you know what it is. Its hard to guess chick breeds without seeing their whole bodies. Feet, especially, can be very useful when trying to identify breeds...

    I know one thing, they're cute!

    The golden ones I think might be production reds or rirs, blackish one looks like a barred Plymouth rock
