    The lighter one are ISA Browns, and I was told the black ones are Black Australorp- all pullets
    Can someone confirm the black chicks?

    They look a lot more like barred rock babies.

    Do Barred Rock chicks have the white spot on head? If so, this may be them.

    Yes they have the spot, and depending on the heritage, you can sex them depending on how the spot is shaped.

    Thank You. I have 3 ISA Brown hens that are almost 3 years old, so these ladies will be the new Brood soon. The Barred Rock hen is beautiful. I have got almost 21 eggs a week with my current hens.

    The black ones are probably Barred Rocks. Australorps wouldn't have spots on their heads.
