    These are the chicks I am having problems being able to tell. there are few different ones they look like but am not for sure. maybe yall can help. The 1st 2 are regular chickens the rest are suppose to be Bantams.

    2 regular chicks I think both rosters...They look to be Golden Comets, but not for sure... when they get a tad older I can usually tell if rosters or not.

    It's hard to tell.... I agree with @BantamLover21 on the first 3, and I think the reddish black ones are black sexlinks (which can also be partridged, see photo below), but they could be partridged rocks too. The last 5 are all look like Easter Eggers, and the solid black one may be a EE as well.

    This hen looked just like your reddish black chicks when she was young. She is a black sexlink, and very good layer.
    Enjoy your chickies!

    Thank you all. I was thinking that the Easter eggers were what the spotty and stripped ones where.
    The ones I said Golden comets My one roster was that color when he was that big and then he transformed to white...I have 2 Production Reds (hens as chicks already and they look nothing like them)
    The black ones were marked straight run...
    The one white I was thinking Japanese bantam too but is has light cream/tan markings
    So dose the other white one...
    these are what the 2 large ones the very 1st picture is of when I got them and another pic of them now. I at 1st though a buff or a mix but they really look a lot different from little to know.. like A LOT lol. I can usually find chick pictures and tell what I got or what things could be but this year I am stumped lol
