    Maybe a Red Star, Buff Orpington, and Barred Rock. Where did you get them?

    The black bird is a barred rock. Too early for me to say on the others, several breeds can look like that.

    x2, I would be easier to guess the breed when they are older.

    Okay, here are my guesses. The first red bird is likely a Red Sex-Link, Rhode Island Red, or some sort of "production red". New Hampshire Red is also possible, but less likely. if its a Red Sex-Link, its a female. Otherwise, you have to wait until they get older. The second chick appears to have less red in her, and is likely a Buff Orpington. Its too young to tell gender for sure, but I'd watch that comb, as it seems a little large (if it continues to get bigger, and gets redder, you have a rooster). Finally, your last chick is a Barred Rock for sure. With the light coloring and the rather large comb, I'd guess male. I think that your chicks are about two weeks old, maybe a little older than that.


    You have some very cute chicks! [​IMG] As Veer67 said, post more photos in a few weeks, and we'll be able to tell breed/gender a little better.
