    The first one looks like a Dutch bantam, maybe Silver Duckwing? Not sure about the rest.

    2 & 3 look like EE bantams. I can see a definite muff/beard on 2 and green legs on 3. Not sure on 1 & 4.

    #1 and #4 are old english bantam type, The male possibly birchen,or silverblue that came black(birchen), definitly a crow wing..the hen is some sort of sport, possibly silverblue or a poor colored blue splash..Dutch have white ear lobes, SilverDuckwings have a white wing bay..The other two hens appear to be D'anver/old english bantam as they are showing d'anver type, and one has the quail pattern..Just my guess

    Pine Grove- good point..I didn't even think of D'Anver crosses for the 2 middle ones, but that is definitely a possibility.

    usalbrechts - if you're trying to spell Araucana - they are definitely not those. Araucana have ear tufts and are usually rumpless. These don't fit that breed at all.
