Got the best photos I could. Nobody would cooperate. The three Bantams should be hens. Nobody is crowing anyway. All are about 6 months old and somebody just started laying about a week ago. Not sure who though.
1. Breed? Sex? Polish?

Wow what nice chooks...... The first one looks rather Polish, but it has black skin and I think I can see five toes! maybe a silkie cross? ( and looks rather hennish) The second one.... maybe a Sebright cross (hen) and the black one looks the same without the markings.... but quite often crosses throw all sorts of colour (hen)

The chickens are definitely hens...
The quail are likely mixed, since I see a brown and a white chick (A&M?) ...
check the vents on the quail. Pick them up, flip them over... if they are breeding, the males' vents will be swollen and if gently pressed they will exude a foam not unlike shaving cream. The hens will not (usually) express any foam... it will show up on their poo. They are very pretty quail. I would suggest just pulling up a chair and watching them. They should be breeding by now (>6 weeks, usually), so you can either catch them in the act of mating or crowing. If the foam/vent checking doesn't turn up anything, of course.

Thank you! I will attempt vent sexing, again. Did it before, but i guess it might have been before they were ready to breed so i was unsuccesful.

Well couldn't tell you anything about the chickens.

The quail however
pic #4 Might be wrong on this, the monitor is acting up,but the chick on the left looks like a brown or wild type. The chick on the right looks like an English white. Can't really see the colors well.
The others are Tibetans and Tibetan tux.
To be able to sex them you would have to vent sex those birds and a great link to that is here:

The white hen is a white polish bantam. The pic of the black chicken with the white lacing is probably an OEG mix. And the solid black chicken is a black OEG bantam. They are so cute.
