    I've read thru this thread a bit but cant figure out what my babies could be.

    They were in the yellow chick trough at TSC and the sign on the trough said potential breeds : RIR, Black Sex Link , Barred Rock and Isa Brown.

    Well we know they're not Barred Rocks or Black Sex LInks ( which I did get at Rural King a week later wooo hooo ) because they're yellow.....

    I bought 6 and one died ( sniff sniff ) and one of the 6 I believe is at least a week older because it was three times the size as the others.

    These babies are a light yellow and they have little black speck's here and there . One even has one black speck on each side of it's beak. Pretty neat lookin.

    I dont have any good pictures of the yellow babies but I could get one today. I picked them up on March 9th, and was told they were 3-4 day olds. I know the big huge one is several days older ( and I bet a roo as well just by how the tail feathers are growng ).

    I also picked up 6 of the production reds that day from them as well but yet have to figure out what breed they are ( not that it matters with the reds ).

    Im just really really really ( okay, you get the picture LOL ) curious as to what the yellow ones are or could be since I do not think they're any of the breeds listed on the trough .

    The specks on the yellow babies are about the size of a fat marker point.

    I have never heard of that one before. I'll go check them out on a google search.

    I hope that's not what they are. The hawks around here get the white chickens but dont bother the other colors. And honestly, I dont want white eggs.

    Thank you for the reply. I did post a couple of photos.

    I couldn't get your pictures to pull up for me, but from description, it sounds like you have Tetra Tints. I think they are supposed to be high producers of cream to light brown eggs.

    Light yellow with black specs could be a California white.

    The ones I got at TSC were Tetra Tints. Yellowish with black specks here and there.
