We bought these chickens when they were around 1 week from the local farm store so we have no idea on the breeds, I'm pretty sure the black ones are astrulorps but there's also reddish, brownish and one light yellow silverish one.
Any ideas?

The brown ones look like Easter Eggers. Do they have pea combs, beards or greenish legs? Brown Leghorns also have that Partridge Brown look, but they'd have yellow legs, no beard and a straight comb.

Do you have any pictures without the wire? I cant see their feet or combs. Australorp is a good bet for the black ones. Another breed would be Jersey Giant, but I wouldn't consider that a typical addition to a feed store's selection.

I might see a rooster in that last picture.

They have green legs and puffy feathers around their faces, do maybe Easter eggers? Hopefully no roosters!

Re: ID my girls
Definitely Easter Eggers, then. The brown ones and the yellowish one. They all look like girls. They'll lay greenish/blue eggs, although may lay cream or brown, too. I have a bunch of EE's, very sweet birds.

Saw a very red comb on an Australorp in that 3rd pic up top. That may mean nothing, but if you can get a side shot of that one, I can see better.

Re: ID my girls
A lot of feed stores call Easter Eggers either Ameraucanas or Araucanas, but they're not true Ameraucana. EE's are awesome birds. Always unique and friendly.

Yep, I think your right about one of them being a roo, I told dh awhile ago I thought one was but he didn't agree ;)

My 17 year old is going to be so happy that the others are easter eggers!

My husband was in denial too. The kids and I knew for ages that we had 3 tipsters. My husband says 2. Finally admitted it.
