    I call the Silkie: Mohawk
    The white one: Snow who is now getting black feathers. (Figures) She or he loves to fly.

    The Lavenders Lavender and 2.
    I know 2 is a roo by the combe not sure of breed. The one with the lighter combe is mean.

    The small white one looks like a Japanese bantam, your "silkie" looks like a Sultan. The two lavender ones look like Porcelain d'Uccles.

    Looks like you've got an Old English Game bantam or Japanese bantam (pic #1 and on the right in pic #2). A Sultan (crested bird with feathered legs in pics 2 and 4, I think it's the one you're calling a Silkie) and a porcelain D'Uccle (pic #3).
