What might this chick be?

Ok, so I know (or guess) identifying chicks at the this age is hard, but maybe someone has some good guesses. I was at tractor supply and bought 12 Easter egger chicks and 12 Dominiques, only that wasn’t what I got when I got home. I will swear that three of the EEs are buff brahmas by the leg feathering and feather patterns but some of the supposed dominiques look suspicious. Can anyone help? They have leg feathering like brahmas but not the feather coloring. The feathers have the barred feathering. The comb looks to be single instead of rose.

Cochin and Cuckoo Marans were the two that I was thinking of, too, but I was thrown by the feet. Neither one has dark feet, and the pictures don't show it but the tops of the foot are black/dark.
What about Midnight Majesty? Or a sexlink? Or maybe it's a gene mutation?

You sure about "cuckoo"? Do marans develop the barring a little late. The three Dominiques (yes, TSC gave me 3 Dominiques in the supposed 12 I purchased) have all started showing the barring on their feathers.
