    I received my order from Ideal last Thursday. I ordered 5 chicks. One was an NHR and another a Gold Sex Link. I don't think I got the NHR. The other 3 chicks are correct. Here are pics of the 2 mystery chicks.

    Gold Sex Link?

    It sure could be a NHR because they are yellow as chicks and the wings feather out like that. Then they feather in darker. I have two of them.

    Thanks for looking. She is a reddish yellow, but she seems to be feathering in so light. It's making me nervous.

    Ours from Ideal started really light and over time some became more a tawny red and the others are an orangey red.

    That's why I got worried. Every chick pic I've seen has been darker. I'm glad we have some experts around to calm my fears!

    that's what mine look like and they are supposed to be nhr. one has slightly lighter ends on the feathers than the other. pretty soon it will have white on the wings, mine didn't start out with white, but now they have it. and they are only 2 weeks old. start looking for new feather pins soon and you will see that darker ones are coming in.
