Can you tell cross from PB? Also, advice on colouring?

    So, I got my assorted box of chocolates opened yesterday and of course they're all adorable. The hatch went wonderful, and I'm in love regardless, but do have a couple of questions.

    I have a couple that could either be pb BLRW, BLRxSL or BLRxAmeracauna or SLxAmeracauna. As I'm not familiar with how colouring is identified at this stage, wondering if someone with more experience could help me figure out what crosses might be in effect with the first two here and looking for colour input on the others. Thanks!!


    Here are the two Wyandotte chicks. This is the light one:

    This is the darker one:

    Here is a group shot showing darker (upper far left) from lighter (lower far right). Also in the grouping are two RIRxAmeracauna, JGxAmeracauna (smallest in the centre) and a PB Blk Ameracauna.

    And just for fun, here are the others. Any advice on what end colours might be? Will the lighter EE from the RIR cross shown here be buff?

    Darker (red?):

    JGxAmeracauna. Black with muff?:
