    Hello, everyone! I am getting my first order of fluffies in mid-March, and because I ordered from Meyer, I had to order a few more than we want to keep. -- we intend to give away/sell the excess chicks. At what age is it obvious what breed each of them are? I ordered 2 Blue Ameraucanas, and I will keep both, then I also will have 3 Black Australorps
    5 Blue Andalusians, and 5 White Rocks. Thank you in advance for any help!

    2 Blue Ameraucanas - chicks should have a little beard coming in
    3 Black Australorps - chicks should be black & white
    5 Blue Andalusians - similar to the blue AM's but without beard
    5 White Rocks - chicks should be yellow
