    I got six babies from a kindergarten class that hatched out some eggs for a project. I hate it when they hatch out eggs and then don't know what they are going to do with the babies after. So, I felt bad and I took them. I have attached a picture of four of them. I know for sure the one in the top right corner is a rooster, he also has feathered legs. My main question is what breed are they? The black and white one was a solid black chick. I am guessing a pullet due to lack of development in her comb. When I first saw the bottom left I thought it was a golden laced Wyandotte, but now I have no idea, and it's comb has recently started developing quickly. Is that a rooster as well? The bottom right I would call an EE because of it's tufts. But I can always can wrong.

    If you got them from a class room chances are none of them are pure bred. I agree with @keesmom they look like mixes. #1 can't be a Barred Rock it doesn't have barring just some white leakage, #2 maybe a Cochin mix (can't be a BO because it has feathered legs), #3 can't be a Brahma because it doesn't have a pea comb, and #4 maybe an Easter Egger, which aren't really a breed but a name given to certain mixes.

    I think the cockerel might be a buff Orpington... but I don't really know.

    He looks like a mix, because buff orpingtons don't have feathered feet. Maybe a Cochin mixed with a buff orpington?
