I've never hatched eggs before, I super excited. My question is can I band them as they are hatching? My hope is to band them by the egg color they hatched from...is that a reasonable goal? This will tell me the breed of each since some of them will look exactly the same as chicks. For example, my purebred cream legbars will be hatched from the blue eggs, but my cream legbar x welsummer crosses will be hatched from the olive eggs. The hens themselves look so much alike, it will be impossible to tell them apart until they begin laying eggs themselves. So here are my questions: 1) If I hover over the incubator like a crazy woman, is there a chance I'll be able to band them before they are too mixed up? I plan to sort the colored eggs to each side of the incubator in hope that would help... 2) What kind of bands would I use and how do you put them on? 3) What size for baby chicks? Thanks in advance for your help!
