    #1 Sorry, no idea on that one
    #2 is a silkie, looks like it may be partridge, but not sure on that
    #3 is a white cochin, and it looks like it may be a roo
    #4 looks like a golden sebright. It has a rose or pea comb, I always get those confused! I have a hard time telling with those combs if they are male or female, but if it is already getting red, it is most likely a boy.
    #5 not sure of breed
    #6 is a black cochin frizzle

    If they are all bantam, #1 and #5 might be old english, but I don't know with those yellow legs. I don't think old english have yellow legs, but I could be wrong.
