    The bottoms of the black ones are orange-ish the same as the top side.

    The black and white one definitely looks like a sumatra. However, there should be some "slate" coloring on it's legs rather than plain orange-yellow, or you should see the darker pigment coming in soon. If it's legs stay that color, you have a sumatra mix.

    The other is not a sumatra. I would say gold laced wyandotte because of the pattern around the face, but the body looks too light.

    Hope this helps!
