    #1 looks like it has a rose comb, and if so, it's a Dominique. If the comb is actually single, then it's either a barred rock or cuckoo Marans.

    #2 could be any clean legged black breed that Meyer offers. I'd guess Australop, but time will tell.

    #3 looks like a blue variety. Perhaps Andalusian, but it could be any clean legged blue breed/variety.

    #4 looks like a buff Brahma.

    Meyer has a chick calculator with pictures of chicks of all their breeds, if that helps.

    The bottom picture (number 4) looks like a Buff Brahma. Your grey baby (number 3) could be a Lavender Orpington, beautiful breed. I love my two girls. The black (number 2) might be a Dominique or some type of Maran. And number 1 I would say either Black Plymouth Rock or Cukoo Maran.

    If you aren't satisfied with my identification I suggest you use this site. They have to be on here somewhere. https://meyerhatch.desk.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2142226-standard-chicks-identification-

    My guess and a guess it is:
    1) Dominique
    2) Cuckoo Maran
    3) Blue Copper Maran or Blue Andalusian
    4) Olive Egger

    Since MPC sells Meyers Chicks,
    You can get on MPC and use their baby chick ID tool:
