    I have 4 baby chicks about 8 weeks old! They are just yellow! We got them from my son's class at school but no info was given with them! Please help me.
    They are also all losing there feathers and look very weird. Is this normal, also?

    My best guess without pictures would be either white leghorn or buff orpington. Both are yellow. Do you know what color eggs they are supposed to lay? Can you provide pictures?[​IMG]

    Could even be a Cornish X.

    Can you post pics?

    If they're 8 weeks old and still yellow, then they're not white leghorns or cornish x, probably buff orpingtons. Can you post pics?
