    Does the brown one have feathers on its legs/feet? Brahmas do. Its comb will also be very flat if it's a brahma.

    My RIR was more red than yellow. Some RIR's have chipmunk-type stripes on their backs, but not all.

    There are chick pictures at the bottom of these pages, so you can compare your babies.

    Hi,

    I cannot see the picture and it's probably to late but :

    The Brahma is a large breed of chicken developed in the United States from very large birds imported from the Chinese port of Shanghai. The Brahma was the principal meat breed in the US from the 1850s until about 1930.

    it's also considered to be a laying breed. In fact, it can produce up to 150 per year.
