    This isn't super important, but I was curious.

    I had 3 RIR's hatch a couple of weeks ago and immediately I noticed all their beaks were different. One chick has a standard yellow beak, one is dark brown tipped and the other is completely dark brown. They are exactly the same age, so I was just wondering what would cause that or if it was normal.

    That sometimes happens with RIR's, Happened to mine, but they don't have any problems. They can have either a reddish brown beak or a yellow one.
