2 Mystery Chicks from MPC Rare Breeds, Guesses?

I ordered 6 chicks from My Pet Chicken this year, and 2 are from the "Assorted Rare Breeds". The first one I think is either a Barnevelder (except it's chest isn't that white, more grey/tan) or maybe a Golden Laced Wyandotte which looks more like it, but is not specifically in the list.

Chick #1: Dark brown with chipmunk stripe, and lots of gold spots on face. Lightish belly.

The second one I have no idea. The only breed I can find on their site that has a baby photo that looks like this chick is the Mille Fleur d'Uccle Bantam - but that's not in the list either, and is a Bantam, and this was supposed to be standards. The only other things I know of that have feathered feet are Marans (none of the colors look like this one) and Cochin (again, none of the colors match up)

Chick #2: Feathered feet, grey body, gold head.

Here's the list of breeds that are in the assortment:
  • Buckeye
  • Ancona
  • Easter Egger
  • Ameraucana (Wheaten, Blue, Black, Splash)
  • Black Sumatra
  • Andalusian (Blue, Black, or Splash)
  • Appenzeller Spitzhauben
  • Sicilian Buttercup
  • Salmon Faverolles
  • Golden Campine
  • Buff Chantecler
  • Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
  • Barnevelder
  • Brahma (Buff Brahma, Light Brahma)
  • Marans (Silver Cuckoo, Golden Cuckoo, Black Copper, Blue Copper, Blue Splash, White)
  • Dominique
  • Columbian Wyandotte
  • Dark Cornish
  • Cochin
  • Welsummer
  • White Sultan
  • Polish (Assorted colors)
  • Exchequer Leghorn
  • Speckled Sussex
  • Hamburg (Assorted colors)
  • Lakenvelder (Silver, Golden)
  • Partridge Penedesenca
  • Jersey Giant
  • Blue Orpington
  • Silver Grey Dorking
  • Egyptian Fayoumi
  • Black Langshans

Just for fun here are some photos of all 6. The others are 2 Exchequer Leghorns, and 2 Welsummers.

I need help identifying a mixed breed bantam chick I hatched?
