    Folks may be able to tell you the breeds, but I think you may find that it is a little too early to tell the sex. 4-5 weeks is best, I think. Super cute chicks, congrats....

    1 probably bearded porcelain booted bantam.
    2 probably bearded mille fleur booted bantan
    3 probably white Japanese bantam, but it could be other things, too.
    4 probably golden Sebrite bantam
    5 hmmm. the legs look yellow but otherwise I'd guess black breasted red Old English game bantam.

    *It's also possible 1 is a light Brahma bantam and 2 is a buff Brahma bantam.

    Impossible to sex them so early. 7 or 8 weeks is a good time to take photos and post again if needed.

    I can only dream of being able to identify chicks that young with such accuracy. Amazing!

    Thanks but all I'm doing is googling photos of chicks of likely varieties and comparing the pictures to your pictures. You could easily do it once you get more familiar with the breeds and their traits.
