I picked out what I thought were five Frizzles at the local Wilco in Oregon City, Oregon. Well, I did get one white Frizzle - still not sure if this will a Standard or a Bantam - only time will tell. However the other four are something else entirely. While they seemed quite varied in color when I picked them out, they all ended up looking very much alike. What breed do you think they are? There are a total of four little red ones, but the photos are of whichever of them would hold still. I took multiple pictures so that you can see lots of details.
Can someone please help me figure out what breed of chickens these are? They have full feathered feet, a single comb, and are red.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

They are approximately 6-7 weeks old; there is one photo that shows one of them standing next to their adoptive Mum, a Buff orpington.
Thank you so much!

I'm not sure which pic is which chick - are they all different ones? The one to the left in the shot of two of them is definitely a rooster and the ones with pink wattles and comb probably are. The bottom pic looks like a boy. Can you take more pics of them all from the same angle? Preferably a close up side on.
