    I'm pretty sure that is a Silkie/d'Uccle mix hen. Black skin, d'Uccle body and vulture hocks. Cute little thing!

    The first one is probably a gold comet, but I'm positive it is a male. HUGE comb and very red wattles.
    Second is a pullet, most likely a mixed breed, but may have some black sexlink in her.
    The last is definitely a male, and looks to be a Delaware.

    First bird is male. It's not a sex link/gold comet/ISA brown, but it may be a second generation breeding of these breeds. Sex linkage only works one time, after that if you breed those birds together they make a mix of red and white birds.

    Second bird looks female. Mixed breed, maybe a female sex link, depending on her ancestry.
    Third bird is male, and my guess is he's also mixed. He could be a Delaware, but I think they have yellow legs. Just taking into account the other birds are mixed makes it easy to think this guy could be also. He could be some variation of a sex link male, if the parent stock had more white than the classic sex link birds.
