Am I an EE chick?

I ordered 2 EE pullets from Ideal. One is a chipmunk chick, with greenish legs and little tufts on its cheeks. I thought one of the other chipmunk chicks I got was the other one, just without the fluffy cheeks. I got an "extra" chick, and thought it was an extra BO since I had 3 yellow ones that obviously weren't favorelles.

Then I took a closer look at one of the yellow chicks and saw this:





She has greenish legs, fluffy cheeks, and is starting to get darker smudges of fluff on her head and back. Her little wing feathers are whiter then the BO chicks.

If she is an EE, then I need to count toes on my chipmunk chicks more closely to see if I got an extra Dorking or an extra Speckled Sussex.

Thanks all!

Gosh, when I got mine from the feed store they must have already been several days old b/c you could CLEARLY see the puffy cheeks on them...how old is this chick...I would think *maybe* she is one b/c she does look similar to my girls (from Ideal as well).
