    I am no expert at this, but I think I see some Buff Orps in there (the really fluffy yellow ones) and since the photo is with a phone and not a camera as you pointed out, it does make it more difficult to tell the breeds, but they are ADORABLE!!!

    If I was in your shoes, I would wait until they are about 5 weeks old to decide on who to keep that way you will have a better idea of what breeds you did get!

    The black one's look like Barred rocks the light ones look like BO and the dark reds look like RIR and maybe the light red's are new Hampshire reds. or red sex links just my guesses. you might have a couple of EE's in there for blue eggs. You might want to wait until they are older to make sure of breeds

    I agree- keep them for awhile to find out what they are. A bonus is that once they are older you can sell them for alot more (depending on where you live). I sell "started" birds all the time.

    The black ones with the white dot on their head look like BR (but if the legs are white not yellow, then they could be Cuckoo Marans)

    I see some buff orps (buff colored), red sex links (2 orange stripes down the back), RIR maybe (reddish brown ones)
