Can you identify these rare chickens?

The two silkies are bantams. The hen has a black face and legs. Her ears are a vibrant blue!

HI!

 

The two chickens in the second pic are both silkies. All silkies (at least all decently bred ones) have blue/black faces and blue earlobes. :) The bigger one, the rooster, may be a mix. His face should be the same color as the hen's.

 

As for the other chickens, I don't know what breeds they are but the first and third pics are roosters, and i think the little chicken at the very bottom in the last pic is a roo as well. 

 

They're all very lovely!

x2 The hens in the last picture maybe Sicilian Buttercups. Could you get better pictures?? Also what type of comb do they have??

Looks like 2 Silkies and the rest are mixed breeds.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I'd like to know that answer too -    but, otherwise  you have 2 silkies (not rare)  and I think the rest are mixed breeds.  The pictures won't enlarge so I can't see them well but, the silkie with the red comb would be disqualified for that color .

Thank you so much everyone. I thought they were rare because I'm new and had trouble identifying them.
