What breed are my chicks? Barnvelder, araucana or Plymouth Rock?
Are they all supposed to be the same breed? Did they come from a hatchery? The top one looks like it might be an Easter Egger chick. Easter Eggers are often marketed by hatcheries under the label Araucanas, but they are actually hybrids that lay eggs in different colors. True Araucanas are tailless and lay only blue eggs. The bottom two might be White Plymouth Rock chicks, but at that age, and without more background information on them, it's impossible to say for sure.
I agree with Michael OShay's guesses.
Of those three chicks, there are definitely no Araucanas, at least by American standards. Are you in the UK? Those don't have single combs and they do have cheek tufts (not the muffs of the Ameraucana)
What makes you believe you have any of those particular breeds? Where did they come from? Reddish chicks with single combs could be several breeds, but not Plymouth Rocks, unless maybe Buff Rocks, but those seem too red on my monitor for that. If they were white Plymouth Rocks, they would be yellow, not red. The first one? Who knows? It looks like many breeds, including Speckled Sussex and Welsummer.
I had some eggs under my broody hen and then they hatched while I was away so I don't know what breeds they are. They breeds of eggs I had were Araucanas, Barnevelders and Plymouth rocks so yeah.
