The brown one may be a columbine/skyline (laying blue eggs or possibly pinkish). Don't know about the other, maybe a bluebell?

The grey one has a lace effect to her. Very pretty and quite heavy :)

I had a good feeling about that one as I have a Skyline and (allegedly) a crested cream legbar (she lays white eggs though :think: dodgy parents) and your brown one looks the same shape and colour to share the legbar heritage.
I've never had a bluebelle though so I'm not sure about that, but she looks like some bluebelle photos I found in a search.
