    but she left (8) in the nest and never went back to the eggs, so i put them in a cooler with some sponges and a heat pad and a heat lamp. and only this one hatched so far, (7) left to hatch....

    Looks like there are some guinea eggs, they take 28 days to hatch. It looks like one of the chicks is a barred rock.

    The three eggs on the far left are guinea eggs and will take around 28 days to hatch. Mine didn't like schedules so they surprised me a day early or so every time. Black ones could be Barred Rocks or Black Australorps. Chances are they are just mixed babies though unless your friend has her birds separated by breed.
