    Could they be New Hampshires? They start out yellow and then turn red as their feathers come in. Keep us posted! and [​IMG]

    RIR's are almost red when they are chicks, so I would guess a buff or gold strain

    lots of chicks are yellow when they are hatched, in a few days when the feathers start coming out you will be able to tell more. do they have feathers on their legs?? you need to post pictures! You know when anyone gets new babies they have to post pictures so we can all see the babies!!![​IMG]
