    I purchased from Ideal 9 pullets, included in the box was 6 males for warmth (males are the yellow chicks in pictures) . Can you tell me what breed these males are? They are a week old today. When I got them they were all yellow, now they are showing some black on their wings and some have a bit of black on their head as well.

    It is just the regular shavings that is sold at Walmart. The picture makes it look different.

    1 or 2 look like Delaware males, but the one with the most coloring looks more like a Brown Sex link male possibly...

    If you send a pic to Ideal customer service, they will tell you exactly what they are.
