Top 2 look like true Amerucuna and last looks like EE. But I'm not positive and OP will let me know if I'm wrong.
They are all Easter Egger Hens. I wouldn't call them true E.E's, as I'm not sure such a thing can exist. Easter Eggers are hybrids (mixed breed birds) that have the dominate blue egg gene personally, or within their ancestry. They are not a "true" breed, and have no required characteristics.
Yes they are EE's, very pretty EE's. I refer to my EE's as 'pure' EE's if both parents are EE's, but RhodeRunner is right. EE's do not meet any requirements that would category them as a pure breed. Pretty much any chicken that lays a blue/green egg is referred to as an EE. Easter Eggers are unique in the fact that they have such a variety in feather coloring, you never know what you are going to get when you hatch them. Yes, I love mine a little too much.
All of them are Easter Eggers.
