Your on the right tract. Two chicks were fostered now what makes them look different?

Two chicks show light red color in their newly forming feathers, and the size indicates one of those chicks is either Border or Columbus, and the two chicks with the variegation are probably Staffords. The structure of the birds is already apparent. Different sizes and shapes.

Nice to see

The yellow chick is a yellow ground bird in this case a German Roller. Mom, a German roller, had only one chick so I fostered these slightly younger red ground Stafford chicks to her. They are not being colorfed at the present as I did not want a red roller! Well it wouldn't be red, when a yellow ground bird is color fed with red dyes, it is a light peach at the most. You need red genes to color red.
