The first one I think is a female the rest I think are males. Oh and all of there legs are a pale pink instead of the yellow on my little barred rock pullet.

Then they're probably not BR because BR have yellow legs. I've never seen a Cukoo Maran in real life, but my understanding is they have white legs.

Maybe there is someone more knowledeable who can comment?

I have also noticed that there barring is not as uniform as my barred rock girl either other than the legs and the barring they look identical .

Yup my barred rock Ruby has bright yellow legs, whereas my cuckoo X has the white legs. ...as did his full blooded mom. You will get nice dark eggs! My barred rock lays a regular brown with some freckles...cuckoos lay darker. Also the barring in your pictures is the busier cuckoo pattern, barred rocks have more uniform barring.
