Are these all Cuckoo Marans?

That's all girl, all the way. At 17 weeks a cockerel would have a huge comb, thick legs, and you'd have all the fancy tail feathers to boot. Might be a mix of breeds but definitely a girl.

Edited to add: I have a couple offspring that feathered out like that - not sure why either. Could be a function of the possible mixed breed side effect.
Thank you! Yay! (Only have 4 so I wanted girls).

Have you taken them to their shrink to see if they are crazy! Like Me ! :D All joking aside they look like normal hatchery Cuckoo Marans . I raise Wheaten French Marans and I like this breed from Bev Davis line . They are nice looking birds that you have there ,even if they turned out to be barred rocks they are good layers also and I like them ,:old

Yes! She is probably part barred rock, part marans, but interestingly, she laid a couple of speckled eggs! dark brown spots on light brown egg. very pretty.
