    my guess is:

    the one that is mostly white with some red is either RIR or NHR

    the black one looks like barred rock

    the redish i can't see real well...could be speckled susex??

    Let's see what other guesses u get!

    Enjoy ur fuzzy butts!

    The two with lots of white look like RSL's to me.

    Two redder ones are RIR or NHR, and the black/white one is a BR.

    The RIR's do not have much, if any white on them. They should be a deep, dark mahogany color. When the percentage of white is so prevalent, one has to assume they are Red Sex Links. They all should be great brown egg layers.

    Chick on top is a Red Sexlink (aka Red Star, Gold Sexlink, Cinnamon Queen, Golden Comet, etc.).
    Chick on far right is also a Red Sexlink.
    Black chick is a Barred Rock.
    The two red ones in the middle are Rhode Island Reds.

    They should all be awesome brown egg layers! [​IMG]
