    I can't see what type of comb the last one has. Could be a BR or a dom, depending on the comb.

    Thanks for the guesses. I was hoping Delaware but wasn't sure. The black one was supposed to be a Black Astraloup (spelling?) I got three of those but the other two also have black on thier beaks so maybe that makes a difference. I guess I just have to wait and see for sure. [​IMG]

    The black one doesn't look like an Australorp at all to me. I don't believe they have a spot on their heads, and they usually have more white/yellow on their chests and even faces. They look like little penguins usually.

    Here are pics of 2-day old Black Australorps for comparison - I agree your little blackie is a barred rock or a dominique. The first photo you posted might be an Easter Egger - I say that because the legs look green in the photo.

    I did not notice the color of the legs until the photo. Does that mean that if chicks have green legs they or EE or at least mixed with EE?
