Do New Hampshire Red chicks get in black barring before turning red?
Mine didn't...but they are hatchery and do have some black on the tips of the tails...

Yup. You will see this in the Reds when they first start to feather out, but it fades out and they turn all red for the most part. If you want to see some gorgeous New Hampshire Reds though take a look at these:

And BTW, these are the best New Hampshires I know of.
