I am curious to find out if the chicks adorable distinct markings will stay once they feather out and grow. I have 2 Black australorps, 2 Silver laced wyandetts and 2 Ameracaunas... And they all have the prettiest markings!!

Too funny.... I too am a 1st time momma hen and also have 2 black Australorps, 2 Auracaunas, 2 silver laced wyandotte + 6 salmon faverolles. My chicks are 2 weeks old today. It has become increasingly difficult to differentiate the Australorp and wyandotte due to changing fuzz and feathers (both were black with white markings at birth). They are changing & growing so fast. Interested in the 'bands' that were referenced in this thread - where can I buy them ?
Have fun with your chicks !
There are several different ones on amazon. Just whatever ur preference is. I will look at my colored zip ties tomorrow and may use them for the time being. Till I know who will be who. The pic is 1 Silver and 1 australorp, if it comes thru.
