    I bout 6 RIR chicks almost 2 weeks ago and they were told to be a week old, now I am noticing alot of white in their underside and some in their back. Is this typical with RIR chicks or are they something else?

    The new feathers are growing in white?

    RIR chicks are whiteish. Golden Sexlinks grow white feathers instead of black. They're a RIR hybrid. Magic? Not sure. Just throwing out some idea. lol
