Any help would be appreciated, and my daughter wants to do 4-h do any of these birds have potential for showing? We love them either way, but we raise seramas and turken so silkies are a whole new world for me lol.

1) Partridge
2) Red
3) Looks to be darkish blue
4) Partridge or buff. Can't tell but I think I see blue streaks so maybe partridge?

For show quality you especially need to look at their feet they should have five toes on each foot and there should be good spacing between the fourth and fifth toe they should not be fused. They should have correct combs. Usually they are showed by their color, though they usually have separate category for mixed colored birds. Looks like the first few are Partridge in color than there is a red one and a blue one and the last one is also Partridge. Looks like a blue Partridge.
From what I can tell the blue one looks like your best bet for showing. Check the feet and the comb! Good luck with your birds.😊
