I had black giant chicks that looked like that. They have yellow skin (legs), which probably means they are American type but I'm not an expert on IDing chicks.
The one on the bottom looks just like my black australorps.
Thanks everyone I got them at a Rural King for 50cents each and did not know what they were I just wanted them. I was told they were all females but the one seems a little bossy ( the bottom pic). and I really hope it is only a bossy pullet chick cuase I know two roo and eight hens will not work out to well. thanks everyone again.
