    First here is a post I did and it should help on comb types. It has comb types along with other information...
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=343605

    Sussexx - should have a solid Black Tail
    Delaware - should have a Barred Tail

    If you are getting /got them from a hatchery -
    Leghorn should be more leaner than a R.I. White (so that you know the R.I. Whites that you get from a hatchery are not true R.I. Whites. True R.I. Whites will only come Rose Comb)

    I'd bet the bantams are columbian wyandottes.
