red guppy fry?

should i be concerned that they are both red? they have always been but i don't have any guppies with a red body. i have been wondering about that. they seem to be healthy and have never been any other color. even as newborns. but i have never seen red guppy fry so i am wondering if this is maybe a birth defect of this dropping of fry?

The pix make it hard to be sure that there are no health problems, but my money would be on that the fry are from one of your female's previous matings with a red male. Livebearers can store milt for up to 9 months after a mating. I bet this is what you're seeing.

thank you. i have males who are kind of redish orange but not their whole bodies just mostly their tails. so i was confused. but there is nothing wrong with the fry. infact they are the only that have survived this whole ordeal with that tank, so in my opinion they are super fry! lol.
