    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join our flock. There too young to be certain, but based on your pics I would say you likely have two White Leghorn chicks and a Red Sex Link. There is no way to know the sex of the two white chicks at this age, but if the the reddish chick is a Red Sex Link it is a female based on its color. I would recommend re-posting their pics on our What Breed or Gender is This? section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this in about 4-5 weeks. By then the breed and gender should be pretty obvious. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your chicks.

    I agree with Michael O Shay; you probably have White Leghorns and a Red Sex-Link. It is too young to be certain, however. Good luck with your chicks!

    I'm thinking the Leghorn near the feeder is a boy - but, my guesses aren't that great either.
