    Can't see the legs, but she looks cuckoo marans to me. The real tell-tale is the leg color. It's white on cuckoo marans, yellow on barred rocks.

    It is the leg color. Like they said. Yellow br, white cm. The other thing. I jave br and cm. The barred rocks feathers are lighter like yours. Rooster feathers on cm are really bright like that but my hens are darker. I ve got pics on my fb.

    The last pic you just posted where it says "heres the roo" thats not a boy, males are light colored like the picture were you compared your new one to your barred rock cockeral. hens loose the color in there legs as they get older, I believe it looks like an older barred rock hen

    There could still be a chance that they are Marans, they really don't look like it though. You will have to wait until they lay there first eggs.
