    Pretty much all your Buff chicks (#1, #3, #5, #7, #11, #16, #18, #20, #22, #24, #26) are going to be either Buff Orpingtons or Buff Rocks. As they grow the Rocks will retain yellow legs while the Orps will have pink ones. #26 does have a tad more red so maybe NH or RSL on that one:

    #2 looks like a Partridge Rock. #4, #6, and #10 are almost certainly Brahmas, but they look Dark, not Light. #12 and #23 are probably Silver Laced. #13, #17, #19, and #21 appear to be Dark Cornish. I agree #8 and #25 look like White Giants. #14 is blurry.
