Default Blue/tan or blue sable?

Hi, can anyone identify if these puppies are blue/tan or blue sable?




What about this one?



They have tan behind the ears, a little tan above the eyes, and a light colored undercoat. Almost 4 weeks old. They do not look sable to the naked eye, but... the pictures seem to say otherwise...

Thanks

It could be the lighting in the photos that makes the pup look like a sable.

It very difficult to determine coat color at 4 weeks. Look at the parents and see what they looked like at 4 weeks.

It's difficult to tell, but they look like sables in my personal opinion.
