Hi guys! I recently got more bantams this month, two roosters and three hens, and I have trouble identifying what breed these are, the breeder only knew that they were bantams. Do you guys know what breed these are?

If it helps, the black hen lays white eggs, and the buff and white ones lay light brown eggs

Ps. Do we need to bathe our chickens? Mine wallowed in the mud yesterday thats why they are so dirty😣

They all look like mixed breeds. There is probably old English game bantam blood in most of them. The lacy hen is probably a Sebright cross. The buff hen is probably old English game bantam crossed with Japanese bantam. The white hen looks like either an Easter egger or a Cornish bantam cross. The rose comb rooster is maybe a Belgian bantam/ old English cross, and the other rooster looks like another old English cross. I'm just guessing their mixes based on appearance, but pretty sure none are purebreds.
