What color are their legs/bottom of the feet (aside from any dark "wash") - marans will have white/pinkish, rocks will have yellow

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Looks like a Marans. But be warned, Cuckoo Marans don't typically lay the dark brown eggs the breed is known for.

I agree that is most likely a Marans as skin is more pink than the yellow of a barred rock. Did you buy straight run or sexed pullets? It's not a great photo but that comb looks quite fleshy and pink which, at that young age, suggests it might be a cockerel.
