Looks like you got them right.
Those boys have poor coloring for Marans. The first appears Birchen, the second, well, let's just say I wouldn't breed or show them.
They may change after a few months.
I like the last little girl the best.

We have a few different threads discussing Marans here if you want to get in deeper.

Thank you. I figured the first 2 weren't exactly upto standard, but glad (sad?) to know I was right. I'll just have to keep them seperated from the flock until I decide what to do with them.
