    The first one is closest to an off colored grey, my guess is that she's from a mixed flock. The second one is a partridge female. The third is a mixed color male.

    I pretty much agree, except that I am not convinced that #1 is a girl. A profile shot would help more than a birdseye view of the back. #3 is one of the variations sometimes referred to as calico.
