    Hi and welcome. It will help us to help you if you post photos taken without the red heat lamp - the lighting distorts the characteristics that would help us get an idea of breed. Did you order an assortment or did you order specific breeds?

    Answered on another thread post of duplicate pictures....

    Top looks to be Black Australorp or possibly Jersey Giant (if yellow feet pads). Might be a Black Orpington...my guess is Australorp.

    Bottom looks to be possibly a Barred Rock unless the feather splotching isn't just photo flash...then it could be something else.
