    I would guess RIR on the packing peanuts. Cute little chicks. Be careful with the sugar water, it gives them the runs and then pasty butt.

    Oops, my mistake... I thought the little black ones you were talking about. I am not good at all the abbreviations yet sorry. I don't know what the little orange ones are.. [​IMG]

    Yep, I'm thinking RIR's, too. I have a couple that were hatched from some eggs a friend gave me.
    Always love to see pics!
