Check out their legs too. For barred rocks and dominiques, if the legs are a solid yellow with little to no dark shading, it's a boy. If the yellow leg has black shading down the front, it's a girl.

What are they mixed with? If the roo was non barred and the mom was barred, then the babies will be sexlinked, which means those 2 would be cockerels.

Sexlinks are hilghly likely. SLW are on the list for BSL sires, and the OE/Marans mix hens could have barring genes. Do you know what kind of Marans? Possible Cuckoo?
