    Left chick in second photo appears to be a Barred Rock.

    I can't tell the other bird as the coloring is bad from the lighting and the first photo is too blurry.

    If it is all black, it may be a Black Sexlink.

    If you are asking about gender...way too early to tell.

    You won't have any indication until 4 to 6 weeks....unless we can ascertain that the all black chick is a Black Sexlink...then it is a girl.

    However, there are lots of black down chicks of both genders in black breeds.

    So back to, way too early to tell.

    I'm thinking barred Rock and a black sex link.

    Definitely Barred Rock, and with the red bleed through, I would say Black Sex Link too.

    however...

    @donrae did you notice that set of spikes on that comb at this age? That's pretty prominent, makes me wonder if we might be dealing with something else and a potential roo. (It's a Rural King chick so it could be anything).

    What say you?
