    Where did they come from? Does one have feathers on the legs? Can we get a closer picture to see the comb and legs?

    Wow - they're gorgeous! I would bet you have blue Andalusians, two roosters and 1 pullet (lighter color). Even with great photos there are several breeds these could be such as Orpington, Langshan, or Australorp. Give it a couple more weeks and it will be easier to figure out.

    Looks like it might be molting into the feathers of a Grey Orpington.

    Actually scratch that, I took a better look and I think you have a game bird, most regular chickens would be more buffy at that age or at least have so more feathers by the legs
