Looks for ideas on what colors I have. There are 6 birds, 5 female and 1 male and only 2 are the same color

I know one is a tuxedo, but not sure what the other color is. It's lighter than the 2 identical birds.

Two pharoah (aka: wild type, brown) 1 male, 1 female.
One tuxedo.
Three range types, probably Tibetan, the rosetta is slightly lighter and has barred feathers, it's hard to tell from the pictures.

And, everyone else out there, correct me if I'm wrong -- I'm new to this too.

I think that you’re pretty spot on. I think that it might be my eyes but one of them looks like a red range type or something similar. The male standing alone is what COVID time quail said I’m not sure if it has something like that maybe some dilute with it? I’m just sticking to the ‘plain’ pharaoh type though. :)

In the first pic I’d say left to right: Egyptian, Rosetta, Rosetta, scarlet, Rosetta tux, and pharoah. Your scarlet is split with Egyptian, it’s like the roux version of Rosetta, the range pattern is incompletely dominant to the wild, so your bird has patterning on its feathers. The Egyptian tho is hard to see, does it have any black? The lighting is low, but it could be pharaoh, in the pic with the scarlet in the bowl, it looks pharaoh, but the first pic it looks Egyptian.

Do pharaohs have white stomachs? All the ones I see online don't, just the cream color
the boy in the stand alone looks like a pharaoh. My pharaoh boy is tux so I don’t know about what color stomachs they usually have, but your scarlet has a tuxy spot too. The stand alone wild pattern bird also has a dark beak, indicative of Pharaoh, Egyptians have reddish brown beaks in my experience.
