Silkie/bantam cochin mixes

So I had 2 silkie roosters and either one or both fathered these chicks and I would like to know if there's something I should look for in terms of determining which they belong to.

The chicks came from Silver laced bantam cochin eggs. I have no silkie hens so they're mixed with one of those two roosters. The black has extremely dark like black feet and the white has blue feet. He is a lighter skinned bird.
I love Cochins!
The first and last chick both have pink feet, what color feet does the cochin/mother have?
That means that the yellow footed ones are male and the dark-footed ones are female, if you’re interested in the sex. I’m afraid there isn’t really a way to determine which was father because recessive white can hide anything.
Ahh okay. That's not too bad. That means 2 boys and 2 girls. I know that the other four are 3 girls and a boy because an ameraucana/cochin would be feather sexable. So in total 5 girls and 3 boys.
