    I got a "Welsummer" last summer than ended up being an EE. The key signs for me were that its legs were green (rather than yellow) and it developed muffs on its face. Yours looks like the legs are yellow. Only time will tell.

    I am pretty sure that 1st chick is a Welsummer. I don't think it is an EE. Many breeds of chicks have that chipmunk look at first.

    Over there
    Hatcheries aren't so good at keeping a color standard- so sometimes it might be a "Welsummer" but oddly colored. See Derperella the Salmon Faverolle.
