    I think the ones in the first picture look like Cochins (feathered feet).

    They are probably all Cochins then. Mottled, gold laced, and silver laced. Ideal also has silver pencilled cochins, so there may be some of those in the last group too. I'm not sure how to tell the difference between the silver laced and pencilled as chicks. It should be more apparent when they are about a month old.

    Pic #1 - could be Mottled, Birchen, or Barred Cochins
    Pic #2 - could be Partridge or Golden Laced Cochins
    Pic #3 - could be Silver Laced Cochins

    They all at least appear to be Cochins due to the feathered feet. Wyandottes do not have feathered feet. There is also a chance of them being of the frizzled variety since Ideal carries those as well.
