Help Identifying Shrimp Breed

I just got these "Orange" shrimp from a local pet store, but some are more yellow than orange. I thought maybe the males are more on the yellow side, and maybe the females or more or a vibrant orange. I could be wrong. Do you guys think they're two different breeds? I do want to breed these, so I wouldn't want brown or clear shrimp down the line.

Could be wrong, but they all appear to be female cherry shrimp to me..... just orange/yellow variants.

The one towards the end with the red on it might be sick/injured. I've heard oregano oil can help with that issue.
