Both are EE crosses. Note the single comb and muffs on both chickens--true EE's do not have single combs. However, these birds have EE heritage because of the muffs. 

You are correct, the one on the top is a male, and the one on the bottom is a female. How old are they?

EEs aren't a breed so there is no such thing as a "true" EE. 

 

 

I believe the top one is a cockerel and the bottom one a pullet but could you get pictures of them standing?

That is a point of debate among many chicken keepers. IMO they are a breed, separate from but similar to Ameraucanas.
