I bought some all yellow chicks at TSC and they are supposed to be NH reds. They are so cute!

RIR's are almost red when they are chicks, so I would guess a buff or gold strain

lots of chicks are yellow when they are hatched, in a few days when the feathers start coming out you will be able to tell more. do they have feathers on their legs?? you need to post pictures! You know when anyone gets new babies they have to post pictures so we can all see the babies!!!jumpy
