I just got this picture from someone selling their cuckoo Maran chicks, I was told they are about 1 1/2 month old. The picture is not a good one but I thought I would give it a try anyway. What gender do you think they may be? I really want some pullets!
Thanks for looking.

Okay I have them now and here are some new pictures, I know two are roos but the one maybe a hen. What do you think, sorry to ask again

they are young, I don't think they are fully feathered on their backs or others were picking.

The one on the left is the only possibly pullet looking one, and it's a stretch to say that- this isn't a good fit unless you have 20+ pullets to go with 3 roos.

Today it the day I go and get these chicks, I hope to have better pics today so someone can tell me what they are. wish me luck! I figure even if they are roos I can rehome them, can't beat $9 for all three.
thanks

I think the one your kids (cute kid!) is holding is still leaning toward pullet, though it's very clean cuckoo coloring, almost more like barring!

It's lighter than I'm accustomed to seeing, but I still say one girl, 2 boys.
