    Any ideas what these are?

    I think the first is a buttercup hard to tell though. She has green legs

    Sort of as a continuation of your other thread on the subject, I would point out that campines (either silver - which are practically the same as Fayoumis, as far as I can tell - or gold) are the other Likely Suspect when considering a chick that has the Fayoumi/Buttercup type marbled look to it.

    Dunno about others, but the Golden Campine chicks I've got out back right now have sort of slatey legs that a person might alternatively call greenish I suppose, it's a funny color.

    I purchased these from Cackle, they don't sell Golden Campine Chicks, only Fayoumi and buttercup
