    I know this is a long shot since these chicks are only a week and a half old, but any ideas on the breed?

    My best guess is hatchery Rhode Island Red...or Production Red.

    I'd second the hatchery Red somethings. What was the mix up? What did you order?

    I ordered Red Stars, but these are feathering yellow and dark brown. I've never had Red Stars come in looking like these, and this is the third time I've gotten Red Star hatchlings.

    Gotcha. Agree they're not red sex links. Has the hatchery responded?

    I'm guessing that they are hatchery Rhode Island Reds (production reds).
