Doms dont have all those solid colored feathers, but Black Sexlink roosters do and they look like Barred Rocks, just messier barring and off color feathers. Since a BSL is made by crossing a RIR with a Barred Rock hen, usually, a Dom hen could have been substituted and the rose comb would be dominant. So, I'm saying is that I think it's a BSL rooster, but made with a Dom hen rather than BR.

Those two blue girls with the poufy heads are Silkie crosses, I believe.

On the blue puffy head ones do you mean the fluffy ones on top or the scalopped feathered ones?

The 5th picture down with the two girls in there. They can also be Sultan crosses or Polish crosses, but they are something that has a topknot of sorts. I have three girls who are Cochin/Silkie x Barred Rock. All three have that pouf; in fact, I call them the Poufy-Head Sisters.

Your silkies are silkies, but they are hatchery/pet quality.

I agree with Speckledhen on the rooster and the two poufy headed girls (with blue scalloped feathers).

The bottom one is probably a bantam cochin mix, as it looks similar to the one I have.
Mine is from a bantam cochin male and a standard barred rock female.
