I like the black one with an orange birchen look to her.
I’ll just call her Gold Birchen. She looks the best of the 3. Your splash and your cock do both have those tail feathers though. Can we see a pic from above perhaps?

Thanks. These are lemon blue (the solid one) and lemon blue splash.
If I'm going to move forward with breeding I'd rather not create more problems than necessary. I'm in a "starting with what you have" stage, but I'll wait if it'll be a disaster.

I'm assuming you want to know how close they are to the standard of perfection?

Here are two links (one for the rooster and one for the hens) that will tell you what they are supposed to look like.

I think your dark gray and brown one is the best of the three.
Thanks! Picture say a thousand words, reading the SOP I can see some flaws but I'm not knowledgeable enough, such as what is considered "medium sized".
Can't exactly show them can I ☹
But I'm confident about next year! 😊
