    The black ones might be australorps or black stars. The gold ones I'm almost sure are orpingtons, since I have some babies downstairs right now that look just like 'em.
    Not sure on the stripes [​IMG]
    You said these were all different breeds, right? Or are some the same breed w/ different colors?

    Slate legged chipmunk could be an EE.

    I believe all the chipmunks are hatchmates.
    As the 2 blacks are-to each other not to the chipmunks and the yellows are hatchmates to each other but not any others.
    Is that confusing?
    (I don't mean to sound sarcastic I am wondering if that makes sense cause I feel a lil confused just writing it). LOL

    Looks like the yellow one has green legs. Are they green, or is it just lighting in the pics?

    Quote:It's the lighting.They are like a fleshy lt. tan color and he/she is a bit darker than the other yellow chicks.The 3 other yellow chicks have a very golden pretty yellow color.It's the same as their beaks.

    The chipmunks can become any of the darker English breeds. If they have light colored legs they could be Speckled Sussex. If the legs are dark, they can become Modern or Old English Game. If they have green legs they might be Ameracaunas (EEs). Really yellow legs could be brown leghorns.

    The buff one with the dark legs could be a light colored EE. Not many buff breeds with darker legs.

    The dark one with the dark legs could be a silver spangled hamburg, lakenvelder, minorca (i.e any of the dark shank mediterranean breeds).

    Update the pictures in a couple weeks.
