Any Ideas on gender? how about colors, I know one is a red breast and one is a blueface and 2 are silver, but the other two baffle me LOL.

Red Breasted is a wild coloring with a red breast...

There is Black Face Red Breasted which is more correct.. Your two silvers look Silver Blue Face (if there is a red breast then you just add the red breast to the name). Silver Blue faces also have the black beaks. The two in front look like males, I may be mistaken. Probably need to vent sex or check their vent feathers, the females will be slightly larger. There is a cinnamon hen in the back corner (left), Black Face Red Breasted male, Cinnamon Blue face hen (if no blue on the front), the back corner on the right is a blue face male.

This is one of the silvers, I couldn't figure it out, the other is definitely male.

Thanks a lot, now is it the lighter brown one the cinnamon blue face or the darker brown female the blue face?

I know they are monogamists but I have set up the blue faced male with both of the hens, I would like to see which one of the two he prefers, then I will see if the black face red breast male will like the other lady, waiting to see what I will come out with quail lady's batch she sent me!! Super exciting lol.

That works. What I do is put my new breeders in a pen and throw a bunch of mealworms in the center and watch which males court the females
