These 3 chicks are 5 weeks old. Can anyone help identify breed/color and the sex? Thanks. I’m pretty sure the brown one is a rooster

First two photos are of a rooster. Second one could be a hen. I think the next is a hen, then the next a possible rooster, and then another hen. Anyone else think the same?

Brown is a cockerel, other two pullets. Where did you get them? Any possibility of being mixed breeds?
I bought them as fertilized eggs on etsy. I’m thinking they all Cochins. The brown is a partridge and gray is a blue. Not sure about the black one. They all have feathered feet

What are the leg/bottom of feet colors? The first matches a Cochin with the yellow legs, but others do not. Going off of what I see and assuming they are pure or a desirable mix, I would have to say Partridge Cochin, Blue Marans, and an Olive Egger mix, potentially Cream Legbar/Marans. For the blue, leg color that I think I see and body type doesn't match a Cochin's

The blacks feet is first, then blue then brown. I was also thinking a splash something for the black one because it does have white feathers but it looks like to much black to me. And the feather picture was taken a few weeks ago but you can see the white feathers.

I'm going to hold my guess for now. I believe the black one has pink feet, unless the flash is washing it out. The white feathers are normal on black birds. Just juvenile feathers
