    I will be hatching my first batch of chicks. They are due the 26th. I have 9 marans, 2 RIR, and araucana. Woo Hoo
    Also another question what chicks hatch yellow or white?

    What color marans and araucana are you getting the eggs from? That will tell you if any of them will hatch white.

    The RIR chicks will hatch a pretty soft reddish color, possibly with some chipmunk striping.
