We have a group of 5 week old chicks that a neighborhood teacher hatched and needed to home. She ordered olive eggers, light brahma, and the company's assorted variety eggs. We have never had chickens before. Any idea what breeds and genders we might be looking at? I put my guesses in, but really have no idea since the company (Meyer Hatchery) has such an large selection of assorted eggs. Thanks!!

Chicken two looks like some sort of production breed, RIR, New hampshire red, etc. I am mot great with breeds, but it looks quite like one to me.
