    pic #1 looks almost like an EE. Mine had the same coloring only she has a blue tint to her feet. It may be a speckled sussex too

    Another newbie here; I just want to guess and then see if I'm right when somebody who knows what they're talking about weighs in.
    My guesses are;
    EE and black australorp.

    Lots of chicks are chipmonk colored. Post pics again in a few weeks.

    Second chick is something barred, the head spot is a giveaway, I'm thinking barred rock pullet. .

    Barred referrs to the color where there are black and white "bars" on the feathers. A bird can be barred with colors other than black, but it's unusual and your bird is definately black. Check the breeds for barred rocks.

    The second looks like a barred rock, maybe a dominique(can't see the comb well). If you can take a better pic of the comb it will be easier to identify.
