    They look to me like they could be New Hampshires. I just googled to see what they look like and yours look like the right colors and all that...
    Our TSC has stopped labeling their chicks...which is good because they have tiny yellow chicks in the bin that says buff orpingtons, and they have leghorns in the assorted pullet bin...and the other 3 bins aren't marked at all, but they look like austra whites, or Cornish Cross with a lot of spots...they were yellow with a multitude of black spots...I say they could be spotty cornish, because we got some cornish cross and 2 of them have quite a bit of black on them...I expected them to be all white, but they aren't all...they are all cornish crosses though...You can tell by the growth. Anyway I'm rambling, but it looks like they told you right.

    This appears to be a Golden Comet ( Red Star, Red Sex Link, etc.) I've got eight of these and raised three from chicks. One of the parents is a New Hampshire or Rhode Island Red. I'm 99% sure of this.
