For the male I'm thinking Cobalt Yellow Face Type II.
For the female I'm thinking Violet Spangle.

I'm not 100% sure though, it's just a guess.

I agree except the male is yellow face type 1, not type 2. So he is yellow face 1 normal cobalt. He is probably split to recessive pied, as indicated by the white spot on the back of his head.

I think the hen is spangle cobalt violet, but I'd like to see a picture of her belly to confirm it's solid.

Now let's see what the experts say ...

That's why I was thinking Type II instead of Type I... I'm no expert though.
