    The first is a red sexlink rooster
    The hen is probably a Rhode island red, or a production red
    The banties look like.... A htchery quality black sumatra bantam, or maybe a rosecomb bantam (need comb pics)
    The white is a black tailed white OEGB
    The reddish one looks like black tailed red OEGB, but it could also be a bad BB-red maybe?

    Also they both have a greenish shimmer to their feathers.
