    Was told these were Red Cross chicks but now I'm not sure based off the pictures I saw on Google. Only one chick picture but both are feathering like this. Both had red bodies and one was red headed and the other a pale yellow head. Anyone have an opinion?

    They may very well be production reds or RIR rather than red sex link crosses. Farm stores are great at misidentifying chicks.

    I fully admit to going the wrong day, new young girl working but I was to excited to wait. The rest I got another day and picked them straight out of their shipping boxes haha just these two babies I don't think were labeled correctly. I'll keep watching and post again once they've feathered more. Thank you!
