    The third looks to be a golden-laced Wyandotte. Not sure on the others.

    What hatchery? That can help narrow things down a bit.

    But I agree with the above posters, the third looks like a Golden Laced Wyandotte, and chick one could very well be an Australorp (or an Orpington, Minorca, etc.- many black birds look similar as chicks).

    Can't help you on the first one, but chick #2 (PICTURE #3) is the gold laced wyandotte.

    Chick #3 (4th picture) looks like it could be a golden campine at first glance. What color are its legs?
