    It looks like a little roo and two little hens. :) Congratulations! They are very cute, although my only need guess is the brown/red is a RIR...not sure for others.

    Although, the little roo (pink comb: boy, yellow comb: girl) could be Dominque if I had to guess..? Hmm...

    Could you get some pictures where they are in natural lighting? It's hard to tell the red chick's breed from the pictures.

    Do you mean the Barred Rock's foot? He has curled toes which can happen from a too low hatching temperature, a too smooth floor, overcrowding, injury, nutritional deficiency, and heredity.

    Will it be a problem for him in the future? Is there a way to straighten his toes out?

    They are about 5 week old now right? I think that it he is too old now to try and fix his toes, it's more ideal to fix curled toes when they are younger ( for example 1 week old) before their bones have already hardened. Chickens with curled toes can live good lives too, here's a link: http://blog.mypetchicken.com/2012/02/29/crooked-toes/
