I will have several mixed breeds of chickens hatching. All from an Americana rooster but the hens are RIR, red sex link, and white leghorn. I was wanting some way of identifying the chicks as I am assuming they will all look the same when hatched.
What do you guys use to identify chicks right after hatch?
I have seen where people use different colored zip ties. Is this a good option?
I was afraid the zip tie would get too tight somehow and the chick would be injured.
Do they stay in place and not over tighten well?
Do you have other suggestions?
