Let me first start off by saying most people around here have no idea what kind of chickens they have. I am not much better, all I know is I had mutts. When I ask, I get the answer "red ones" (the majority of folk get the chicks from TSC around here). So I asked one of my students (Yep I am a teacher) if I could purchase some eggs from her to restart my flock. She sold me a dozen and tonight thet started hatching. YAY!!!!!!! As far as she was concerned, they are just "red chickens". The eggs were brown some light and some spotted. I have purchased "red chickens" (red sex-links) before and all the chicks were brownish-red. Well the first one I have tonight is yellow. All of that to get to the DUH question. What "red chicken" hatches yellow chicks? I know stupid, but just wondering.
