    About 2 months ago, a friend of mine was in tractor supply and bought some birds. He was told they were Rhode Island Reds. However, half the birds were yellow fuzzies, not typical of RIR's. I'm unsure what they may be. Here's an 8 week pic of 1. Any ideas? Thinking maybe just leghorns.

    They're probably AustraWhites (Australorp x Leghorn) if they came from TSC. That would account for the black spots and them looking a lot like Leghorns. They're beautiful as adults!
