    The chicks with the stripes and "mascara" are Black Breasted Red Old English Game Bantams.
    Oh, and they look to be 3 hens. If the stripe down the head is well defined, its a hen, if its fuzzy, its a rooster. That is what I have been told by several oegb breeders.

    The last one looks like a d'uccle. Either a mille fleur or porcelain - hard to tell from the pic.

    I agree with the #2 being a d'uccle . . . but I'm not sure if it's mille fleur (there's not enough stripe and speckle on the wing feathers). He doesn't have the signature "stance" to be a cochin. Too much leg lol
