    Rooster looks like a mix, possibly an Easter Egger. The hen could be a Blue Orpington, Blue Jersey Giant, or possibly a Blue Plymouth Rock.

    I'm thinking Silkie mix on the rooster (likely a mix of mixes, not a first generation Silkie mix). Not sure on the hen---she's not very big?

    Agreed, mix of mix on the boy. And that does look like possibly a walnut comb instead of pea.

    I got no better guesses on the pullet.
