    I can't see much for the first image but the overall face shape reminds me of a bantam of some more, and a mille fluer pattern.
    The second looks like a black star with a crest so I would probably say she's a mix.
    Your pretty little dude also appears crested, so I would assume a mix as well, though they could easily be crested legbars of some sort!

    We need a better pic of the first bird. A profile shot of her standing naturally is best, including legs.

    The other two are mixed breed birds. They could be someone's Olive Egger project, but if the feathered legs came from Marans blood I'd expect them to have white skin. Does the dark hen lay colored eggs?

    The last two remind me of some silkie mixes ive seen. The hen looks almost like a black star and the rooster kinda looks like an Easter egger. No idea about the top one. Do you know where they came from?

    I think that rooster might be a light brahma crossed with a legbar?
