    Can't be positive because the pictures are great but they could be Red sex links or Plymouth rocks.

    They might be White Rocks or Leghorns, or Red Sex-links. It is hard to tell.

    We need photos without the red lighting as we are looking for down color and feather growth color.

    Well they are at a food store so I can't do anything about the light but what is the most common thing that would be sold at a feed store?! Out of these choices...

    The feed stores sell a lot of different breeds, and *should* have their bins marked. It is usually best to ask the sales clerk who is familiar with the poultry section what breeds they have.

    If there is no clerk, or they appear clueless, then you need to educate yourself on the breeds themselves as to what they look like as chicks.

    With that poor red lighting I would only be making guesses, and would guess as BantamLover21 has guessed.

    So, here is a good photo gallery of a number of breeds so that you can compare in person with what you are seeing.

    http://www.esteshatchery.com/gallery.html lots of different breeds, in particular note the White Rock, RIR, Buff Orpington, and Production Reds

    Cackle hatchery has videos and excellent photos of breeds as well here (Click on White Leghorn and Red Sexlink and Cinnamon Queen in particular):

    I'm am very educated on breeds a much more. I personally thought they were leghorns and was wondering what my fellow friends at byc thought of them.
