    I think they are Bantam White Leghorns and i think the one with the classic floppy White Leghorn comb is a female and the one with a straight comb is a male, the people i got them of which i know had no idea of breed or sex they and gave them to me for free and had no idea but when i got them home realized that one (the straight combed chicken) had spurs about 1cm long (Pictures dont show but i can get some more). They are roughly around 18 weeks (POL).

    They aren't leghorns, the leg color is wrong. They may be Amberlinks

    they are all pullets and they look like leghorns. the leg color is due from them laying because as they lay the yellow on the legs slowly turns white and by the looks of it they are great layers

    I would agree if the legs were pale yellow (color draining out) or white, but they're more of a slate.

    I think they're mixed, myself. They have large combs and white earlobes but the leg color is off and the body type looks squatter than leghorns. If the red bird is large fowl, I don't think these are bantams, just smaller like a leghorn.

    No roosters in those pictures.

    [​IMG]Here are the updated photos. What i think is the rooster is the one with a straight comb the one i think is a female is the floppy combed one. So if i call it floppy or straight you will know what i think the sex is.
