    So i'm quite new to this chicken thing and i'm not sure what breed my little chickies are, I just got them last wednesday from a feed store, all I know is that the two in the middle on the top picture are the same breed. Help ASAP!

    Far too young to guess accurately, but the black chick is probably an Australorp. The others will have to feather in a bit more.

    The black ones look like Australorp, does the white one have "puffy" cheeks? If not it could be a white Plymouth rock but it is so young I can't say for sure. Also do the the two brown ones have puffy cheeks?

    I think you'll have to wait until these guys feather out some more before we can be sure.
