    I'm not good at silkies. But, #5 looks like an easter egger. #6 could be either a sex link or easter egger. It has sex link colors but seems to have a pea comb. it's really hard to tell, the pic is pretty blurry.

    Do you mean right under her beak? I'm not sure I've seen something like that. Looks like her skin is stretched a little funny there.

    looks like an ee or a cornish mix of some sort depending on if that is a beard thats been plucked out or not
    a black sex link

    the last 2 look to have leg mites which means the silkies would have them to. i hope you quarantined them for a month at least before adding to your flock if not you will need to treat everyone for leg mites and lice as well as lice usually accompanies leg mites
