    The "pair" you got are both boys. They look like dutch (ear lobes) But I don't think they are

    Im thinking the first three pictures (two cockerels) are crosses. The "big one" looks to be part jap. Kinda thinking the same on the spangles too...

    The last ones i believe are BBreds..



    ETA: By the way, in the first two pictures the cockerel kind looks sickly.. How's he feel/act?

    yea we think he has worms weve been treating them for that...

    and 3 and 4...the ppl we bought them from said they were called spangled japanese bantams but alot of ppl on here said they had never heard of spangled japanese bantams and i couldnt find any pics that looked like them on google so i figured they were somethin else

    and if the first 2 are mixed what are they mixed with??

    The folks you got them from may have been working on new colors. The first pair looks like Dutch mix but not pure. The comb on the Spangled male looks more game than it does Jap... The last looks like BBred OEGB trio.
