Can anyone tell me what breed these chicks are?

    They are about 4 weeks old.
    I guess it's too early to tell gender, but if anyone wants to give an opinion, that would be great too!
    Thanks in advance.

    The red one on the right looks a lot like my Rhode Island Red at that age.

    The lighter one looks like a production red to me, the darker looks like my RIR's. I have two production reds too.

    Thank you! I forgot my husband included one of the RIR in the pictures. These are 2 we got at the same time. They grew so much quicker and feathered out so much quicker than the others, so we weren't sure exactly what they were.

    They are so sweet and docile! They climb in my lap and loved to be petted.
