    I don't think #1 is a recognized color, maybe partridge but I don't think so.
    #2 looks like partridge or a really 'dirty' buff.
    #3 also looks like a partridge.

    I think they are all partridge, though #1 is very light. (judging by the last pic)

    #1: Would be a Splash if s/he didn't have the smut color in his/her wings. Most likely s/he is Splash split to partridge, red or buff.
    #2: Pet quality Partridge
    #3: Another PQ Partridge
