    I will have to respectively disagree.. The first picture is a Cochin Roo. It maybe a mix, but I don't see what kind, it is most likely simply a hatchery quality.

    I don't know what the bird is with the horn is.

    The next is most likely a Salmon Faverolle banty roo

    and I will go with the others on the Delaware cross option.
