    Are those pictures of the packing peanuts? A lot of them look to have cheek puffs so I would have said EEs also. The carmel colored ones could be something like a NHR or Buff orp/rock? The little dark guy with the head spot, some barred breed, BR, Dom?

    Does it have cheek puffs? Couldn't really tell from the picture, it looks a dark carmel/orange color in the picture on my computer, I have not had an EE chick from a hatchery quite that color, but depending on what they are crossing them with now, it could be... usually the white or buffy colored EEs were more yellow as chicks. I would hope they would not send the same breed as packing peanuts as you ordered. You might also have one (or more) extra EEs since they usually send an extra along. Are any of the chicks a lot smaller than the rest, EEs usually tend to be good sized.

    top left - most likely Barred Rock
    top right - EE (probably female)
    all the others except the black one look like they could be EEs
