Together with the flock
She is a Black Sex Link pullet. Females are black with orangish or light brown streaks while the roosters have a barred feathering. You should be expecting a lot of brown eggs from he when she gets older. :D

The others might be BJGs, but since this chick has other colors in her feathers she is either a Black Sex Link or a mix. Some BSLs have more orange in their bodies here are a few examples:
