Day old olive eggers...can we determine pea combs this early?

    We incubated 24 eggs (Welsummer x Ameraucana) and anticipated half to hatch. Well, every single egg hatched!

    I'd like to offer at least half of the babies for sale, but want to be sure we keep pea-combed olive egger pullets as much as possible. Can their combs be distinguished this early? If so, do any of you have pictures showing us what to select and not select?

    Thanks!
