Aww...cute. Well that yellow one does look like a wheaten/blue wheaten and will know more later when they go through color changes. You can see the influence of the wheaten cross on the blue one. The reddish brown color on top of it's head. Yes that one will be considered an EE. Btw, it might be a good idea to put some vit/min poultry mix in their water because hock sitting like the yellow one is doing is a sign of weakness and it is likely missing some key vit/minerals, B, E, maganese and biotin most likely. If it spends alot of it's time on it's hocks, I would make sure you bring him to the water often and it has an additive in it. At least for the first several days. Oh, you may already know, but one thing I do for the first week for the chicks is I further crush the chick crumbles for them. Some chick crumbles are still too large for one week old chicks, so I get the rolling pin and a plastic bag and further crush them. Some feeds are already powder like or very small, but some aren't.
