What breed AND sex are these 3? Lots of photos

I was given 3 chickens by a teacher who hatched them in her preschool class as a spring project. She had no idea what kind of chickens they were but she said she had them checked out and they were all hens. I got them when they were about 4-5 weeks old (they still had downy feathers and were smaller then my RI red). Now they TOWER over every other chicken I have and I've caught them mounting my known hens. No crowing yet and I've had them for about 5 months (I know that doesn't mean much tho).
I've looked for spurs on the backs of the feet but don't think I see any. They have feathers on their feet (which half of them have fallen out as you can see in the pictures).

Any ideas? I tried to get as many photos as I could but it's windy enough today to knock a witch down with a house if you know what I mean?!

See how much bigger they are then my RI red? Never mind the cochins to the right!

They have feathered legs so they are Brahmas

My daughter shows Cochins (LF and bantam), too. Wyandottes normally wouldn't have single combs (although I have seen quite a few hatchery birds with single combs) or feathered legs. Silver laced Brahmas are still rather rare as that is a color that is currently under development and Brahmas would have pea combs.
