How can you tell the difference between Barred Rock egg and a Black Sex Link egg?

Is there any definitive way to tell the difference between BR and BSL eggs? I would like to sell fertile eggs or chicks once my chooks start laying but I only want to hatch and sell Barred Rocks. I only have BRs and BSL and the only rooster I have is a BR. They should start laying in January of 2022 if everything goes smoothly and they're comfortable enough. Thank you.

Egg shape and color can vary greatly from bird to bird regardless of breed. The only way to be sure is to use trap nests or separate the hens.
