    I have two white leghorn chicks that are around 2 weeks old now and the marking one of them had earlier is starting to wear off, so I won't be able to tell them apart. What should I do?

    I've got velcro wraps on mine. It's the only way I can tell them apart

    Don't paint them red, the other chicks might pick on it.
