    #2 (assorted bantam bin) - I have been told that this is a Buff Cochin. Any idea on gender?

    Let's see... Number One is an Amberlink, Numbers 3 and 4 are Old English Game Bantams in different colors I think. Are they about the same size? And as to their gender, how old are they?

    3 pullet but may change if the comb starts to get red. Last one is a jap. Bantam (because of the very short legs) and OEGB.

    #1 likely California White or Austra White - it's a hybrid of a white and a black bird for laying lots of eggs. An Amber Link/White/Star would be white with reddish in the feathers; your pictures look like black spots to me.
    #2 agree buff cochin
    #3 Some kind of OEGB, or maybe dutch, but more likely OEGB, BBR?
    #4 looks like white OEGB to me. If it were White Japanese, the tail would stick up straighter.

    Have fun with them.
