    Looks like them to me. There are different colors of Marans. And those are three of them. Also Black Copper Marans, Wheaton Marans.

    The top two pics don't look like Marans to me.

    Top left, looks too featherfooted and squat built, almost like a feather footed bantom. Breed name escapes me.

    The top right, look like Leghorns. Then again, many times Maran cockerels go through a very akward teenage gangly stage, so those "might" be.

    The bottom pic looks like a Cuckoo Maran.

    You need to go see the birds in person, those picture are all so different they aren't their birds, I think they were pictures to be examples of the colors she had available.
