    Picked up an assortment of pullets over the weekend identified the others, these two I'm struggling with though... a little help, please? The black ones wings are much smaller than all the others and it has multi-colored legs.

    The black one looks like a black sex link.

    The little chipmunk---so many breeds start out like that. Could be a Welsummer, a brown Leghorn, etc. You'll have to wait until that one feathers out and matures some to know for sure.

    "Chipmunk" (so cute!!!) looks to me like a cockerel judging by the large comb at this age. I am guessing Leghorn or Welsummer based on the brown color pattern. It can be very hard to tell them apart, but if it turn out to be a pullet, the Leghorns will lay white eggs and Welsummer will lay beautiful dark brownish colored eggs. I hope you have good luck with these little cuties! Maybe post again in a few weeks or a month and I might have a better guess.
