    It's hard to tell since the picture is so small, but it looks like you have a red sex link. (maybe 2) The chipmunk patterned ones are difficult without closer pictures. So many breeds hatch in chipmunk pattern.

    The 2 dark ones look like Easter Eggers. You do have a red sex link, the reddish/orange one, and with that coloring, it's a pullet. I'm not sure about the white one.

    Are the easter eggers more aggressive? These 2 seem to constantly beat up on the other two???

    Mine is not aggressive. Are they beating up, or just establishing who's boss. If they are running at each other and fluffing up their neck feathers that's normal. Sometimes jumping is involved also.
