    i have ordered some speckled sussex, barnevelder, and welsummer chicks. they are all coming in the same order, and i am realizing that they look quite similar! will it be hard for me to tell these apart? i will be selling some, and dont want to accidentaly sell all of one breed, haha, should i ask the hatchery to mark the for me? thanks!

    I also look at the chick pictures on www.feathersite.com
    I don't know what they have for these specific breeds, but it's a good general resource for pictures of chickens. I like it that they try to get pictures of the different color varieties, adults, chicks, pullets and cockerels. It's pretty useful.
