Can anyone try to identify these two for me?

    My mom loves these little buggers and I don't have much use for
    them. But when mom ask you to raise a few bantams for her, who
    can tell mom no?
    Anyways I got these for her at a feed store as straight run
    bantams. No breed or sex indicated and these two I have no
    idea as to what they are. The gray one at one time was the
    ugliest bird I have ever seen. It's not too pretty now but is
    actually about 100% better looking than it once was.
    The smaller one is probably the meanest one I have ever had.
    Thanks in advance for ya'lls help in identifying these "things".

    The two bottom pics look like Old English Silver Duckwing, definitely a hen. Going to guess on the top pic to be a Blue Cochin, looks to be male.

    Bantam Lavender Cochin cock/cockerel and a Silver Duckwing OEGB hen/pullet. She's probably not so much mean as not willing to take any grief off of anyone or anything. Little birds, big personalities & egos. They're nice looking.
