    The red one looks to me like a Rhode Island Red or Production Red...

    Please know that I am not an expert at all at this, BUT, the first one looks like my Welsummer babies or my Speckled Sussex babies??? Just a wild guess.

    I don't think that is a dark brahma, I have a 2 day old dark brahma chick, you can see in my picture, she is the chick on the left. She has feathered feet and she is much darker, she also has some yellow around her beak

    #1 might be a silver laced or pencilled cochin...since dark brahmas are also pencilled, it may come down to the type of comb - pea (brahma) or straight (cochin). EIther way, they are all pretty, large -sized and rather docile.

    I agree, #2 looks like a production red - which is very similar to a golden comet.
