So my question is what colour my yellow chick's will be. I just wondered are they gonna be White or?
Maybe it's silly questions but it's my first time I feel with incubating eggs and having chick's.

I agree, we need to know breeds. Also, is your setup there temporary? I ask because they look a bit crowded.​

I see a couple that appear on track to be white. A couple others with similar (yellow down) appear on track to be wheaten. With chickens I know, if first wing feathers are coming off a solid white devoid of pattern, then they will be white as adults.

Try to take pictures of individual chicks with wings extended. Chicks with pattern in down or color other than yellow will not be white.

You will see some wheaton. The last hen pictured appears buttermilk (silver(white) over wheaton). Her sons will carry the silver allele so could appear whitish on hackles, saddles and wings.
