    A picture of each one standing and in daylight would help a bunch.

    My first thought is that they are all mixes. The second one may be a Nankin mix.

    They all look like mixed breeds to me. The second one may be mixed with Nankin, and the others may be Old English Game mixes.

    Japanese mixes. The clincher was rooster number two- he looks just like what a Japanese mixed with gold Sebright would look like. Including the rose comb. p.s. I like this roo a lot! Just beautiful to me.

    It looks like the first roo might have some leg feathering. Last one has a beard. Perhaps a backyard flock of Japanese roo with several different breeds of bantam hens?

    You can do that, have a roo only pen if they get along.

    If you want to breed, it depends on your goals. They're already mixed so purity is not a concern as is. If you just want cute little chicks, then any bantam hen will do, pure or mixed.
