    The first one almost looks like a black austrolorpe. It has a black single comb. Its legs are black but its toes are pink.
    The white under belly has some gray mottling. Its legs may be a little short.

    The second has feathered legs. It has no discernible comb. It is mostly tannish gray with the "chipmunk stripping" on the back.

    The third is not a bantam.

    I'm guessing the last one might be a EE?

    2nd--some variety of cochin--partridge, perhaps.

    The one with the feathered legs is a cochin. And the poofy cheeked one is an Easter Egger.

    Some times the leg color changes as chicks mature.

    If it helps, they were hatching eggs from Griffith Hatchery in Missouri.

    No, I got them from the library!

    Could the black and white one be a Japanese?
