We rescued these ladies from very cramped and ill conditions and they're coming on nicely, but it's the first time I've had hens (these 4 months have been an experience!)and I'm not certain what breeds they are.  Any help very much appreciated!

First is Becky, I think she is a Welsummer?

Second is Nari, she is very small, fast and light.  Also mean spirited.

Third picture is Waboo, she's gotten even bigger and has her comb starting to come through now, fourth is Wuschel, I think she and Waboo are the same breed?

Any help definitely appreciated!

No2 looks like Bovans Goldline.
No4 looks Speckled Sussex.
