Got them off cl but the bantam has a bad case of scely leg mites. I put on invermectin for cattle on her legs along with her chicks hoping that helps cure it.

The first looks like an Easter Egger. I'm not good at bantamsome so I'll let someone else answer that.

the first bird looks like an Easter egger to me. Faverolles have different coloring, a straight comb, feathered legs, white skin and five toes. I can't see this bird's legs to confirm, but I'd guess she has clean green or dark legs. she'll probably lay colored eggs, with that pea-ish comb.

No idea on the little momma, sorry. Hope you get the mites cleared up!

Yellow skin, that's an Easter Egger. Salmon Faverolles have white skin, and it's a dominant trait.
The bantams look like Old English Game bantams. I'm not an expert on all their color varieties, but those might be Black Tailed Buff or Wheaten.

WOAH IMPORTANT!! You may need to rinse those legs ASAP. The way you treat with ivermectin is 0.01 ml for ever kilo of body weigh so it's like an 1/8 of a teaspoon sort of amount per bird. The chicks being lighter will be an even tinier dose. You use one of those kids plastic medicine syringes to put that on the skin on the back of their neck just like tick treatments in dogs. If you have rubbed or sprayed it all over their legs you have way exceeded the safe dose and need to get as much off as you can before its absorbed into their blood stream and you have some very sick birds!
