    Can they be yellow or orange? We now have 9 hatched with one more pip - 4 black and the rest either light yellow or orange. We thought they were Rhode Island Reds but now not sure.

    Most RIRs are buffish red, the best discription I can think of is a buffier belly and a rusty red colored back. Here is a pic -

    When I first got my babies I thought that my RIR's were Buff Orphingtons. The chick on the right and left of the center chick in this photo are RIR's. They are now 5 1/2 weeks old and a dark rust color.
