This paper studies positive solutions of a class of delay differential equations of two delays that are originated from a mathematical model of hematopoietic dynamics. We give an optimal condition on initial conditions for $t\leq 0$ such that the solutions are positive for $t>0$. Long time behaviors of these positive solutions are also discussed through a dynamical system defined at a space of continuous functions. Characteristic description of the $\omega$ limit set of this dynamical system is obtained. This $\omega$ limit set provides informations for the long time behaviors of positive solutions of the delay differential equation.
