    The husband brought these home from the feed store and didn't bother asking what they are. I would love to hear some input. They are 4 weeks old. I'm not allowed to get any more chicks until I find out what they are, and I'm trying to be as patient as I can. Thanks!!

    I'm not really all that good and ID'ing birds but my guess would be Golden Comet, which is a sex link chicken. They aren't as light as a Buff Orphington nor as dark red as a RIR. They fall somewhere in between.

    My Red Stars look like that as babies. I can't tell if there is a color and comb difference in the darker one. If they are red stars, congratulations. Mine are by far the best layers I have!

    I too would say red sex links. I have some laying now and that's exactly what they looked liked. Mine were called red stars. They are called different names depending on the different breedsm used to match them. Congrats you got pullets, in about 20 weeks you will have great eggs.l
    Here's a link from feathersite that explains them. If you look futher down there is a red sex link pic that resembles your girls.
