    Two at the back look like pullets, one at the front is a cockerel. I think they are barred rock, the males of this breed are paler in colour than females.

    The pullet in the back has pinkish/ white legs, does all of them have the same leg color? The two pullets in back look more like cuckoo marans with very faint cuckooing

    Yes all have pale legs with like a grayish scale to.them. They are all quite shy have Bern talking to them and stroking and holding them lots but still seem shy. The rooster looking one I'd massive compared to other 2

    Well if the legs aint yellow, then they aint barred rocks. So at the moment I'd say cuckoo marans or a mix breed. All chicks go through a "scary monster" stage with you. If you keep messing with them and giving them goodies, they should settle down.
