    Where did you get them? Can you tell when kinds of combs they have?

    If you got them from a hatchery, the fuzzy-footed chicks are likely brahmas (pea comb) or cochin (single comb)

    #1 could be an easter egger
    #2... can't tell. something blue. what kind of comb?
    #3 might be a lakenvelder
    #4 looks like a brown leghorn
    #5 and 6 look like either black australorps or jersey giant.

    You're going to have a colorful flock!

    I got then from Murray McMurray. I ordered the brown egg assortment and recived three free. In the morning ill look to see what kind of combs they have.
    P.S. thank you so much. I would have never thought about looking at there combs.

    My guesses are-

    Nugget- Silver spangled hamburg (looks a lot like mine from MM last year)

    4- Welsummer

    5 and 6 - Australorp (bottom of feet pinkish white) or Jersey Giant (bottom of feet yellow)

    I ordered the rainbow layer collection from them last year and the birds are great!
