    I just got these today and no one really knows what kind they are. The brown one looks like a leghorn. The yellow maybe an Orpington but I'm not sure about the other one? [​IMG]

    There are quite a few breeds that look like that as babies. The chipmunk pattern can be anywhere from speckled sussex, to welsummer, to legbar, easter egger, to dorking. The white/yellow could be anything from a delaware or Brahma or leghorn or buff orp. I can't see leg color or feet or anything, you'll have a much easier time as they age lol

    I would wait another month or so. It will be easier to tell then.

    The grey one looks like a splash laced red Wyandotte. If so, it should have a rose comb and yellow legs.
