    I was told all 4 baby chicks on the left were Rhode island reds but I'm having a little trouble believing it! Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    The three dark red chicks on the left are probably Rhode Island Reds (or Production Reds). However, I don't think the lighter, yellowish chick is a RIR.

    For more help on breed, I would recommend posting in the What Breed or Gender is This? section of the forums: What Breed Or Gender is This?

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. The three dark red ones on the left look like Rhode Island Red chicks (or possibly Production Reds), but I agree with BantamLover21; the lighter yellowish chick does not look like a Rhode Island Red. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your chicks.
