I do think so, based on the patchy coloring especially in the breast, the red on the shoulders, the suspicion of wattles, and the pink comb. That being said, if they are around 18 weeks old, the lighter one may be a pullet. I'm not as sure as I often am on that one.Ahhhh, that's why I can't figure out what kind it is. I had looked at that website link before and couldn't match them to it. The pullet I do have looks just like the Blue Wheaten in the website. Well rats, the breeder I got them from said they were Wheaten Ameraucana. That's the last time I buy from them. So you think the lighter of the two is a cockerel?

I would call that "breeder" and get your money back. A wheaten Ameraucana looks like this: http://www.ameraucana.org/scrapbook_files/lfwheatenm.jpg -- not even close to that boy you have there. And even if the other one is a pullet, it doesn't look wheaten since it has patches of black and red on the breast. Look again at the ABS photo: http://www.ameraucana.org/scrapbook_files/lfwheatenf.jpg
You aren't the first person to be scammed and sold EEs instead of Ameraucana, but since that "breeder" went so far as to tell you they were Wheaten, I'd try to get my money back--and I'd make them take those birds back, too.
I'll get back to you on that one tomorrow, I am not at home right now to check their little feet. Thanks for your help!They do look mixed but maybe you have a wheatan roo & a wheatan splash roo. The chest feathers on the lighter one makes me think roo..what color are the bottoms of their feet? Yellow or white?
