    Will I be able to tell a BLRW and EE apart as a day old chick? I got a group order and will need to id the little girls to split the order. Hatchery won't label them. Did some searching but didn't find much. Biggest hint I found looks like the EE (might) have a tuft on its cheek. BLRW will already have a blue hint of color. true? Any other hints or pics that show differences? (they are sexed before shipping)

    Coming from Meyer Hatchery.

    Also getting Barred Plymouth Rock and Buff Orphingtons but those should be easy to tell apart.

    Thanks!

    The BLRW should have yellow legs while the EEs have a greenish tint to theirs. Their combs will also be different as they grow, but I"m not sure if there will be that much difference as day olds.
