    I'm not to good at this but # 1 RIR, my RIR at that age the roo's comb was more red. And is that a RIwhite next to it? Good luck. Hope someone helps you.

    Just a guess- first RIR is a Roo? White one also has a pretty big comb! Base on comb and stance. Rest kinda look like pullets.
    But this is just a guess (more like a shot in the dark). They are a little two young and the pictures are not very good.
    Wait till they are about 8 weeks and then take pictures of comb and one with a sideview of the chicks standing. Make sure its in focus so the hackle and saddle feathers stand out.
