they're kinda young....the only way I could tell the difference b/w my roo and my pullets is from the comb developing faster, getting bigger, and getting redder sooner than the females. That's the only advice I know....how old are they???

My guess on breeds:
1) Buff Orpington
2) Rhode Island Red
3) Barred Rock
4) ???

Looks like a nice mixed flock of good layers, assuming they're all pullets!

What does the comb on the last one look like?
The chick looks like a slw to me, but Ihaven't owned many of these and am by no means an expert.

I think our chicks are 1 month old. Here is another pic of chick #4. We really don't know anything about chickens but could you tell me what a SLW is?

Never mind! I just noticed the comb. It looks a lot like our SLW (see pic) but they have pea combs and it sure looks like a single comb on your chick.

I don't think it's an Australorp. Ours did not have white like that in the wings when she feathered in -only white in the baby fluff-, nor an eyeliner stripe. (She's in the pic below, far right.)

Here's our Silver Laced Wyandotte at about 4 weeks old (far left. But see how diffferent the comb is?):
