I got these girls as a rainbow pullet pack from Meyers hatchery looking for help on ID
#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.
This should help you figure it out since you have a closer look at your chicks than we do.
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-
Thank you! those are similar to what I had guessed as well using Meyers id chart! Guess some I will just have to be patient and wait till they grow!

My guess and a guess it is:
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:
