    I want my broody bantam welsummer to hatch some eggs, however I prefer her to hatch other welsummer eggs. As I have 8 other hens it is hard to keep track. Also, it is hard to only separate the bantam eggs by their small size because I also have other non-welsummer bantam chickens that also lay small eggs!

    I would like to avoid separation because I don't want to mess with the pecking order, but I want to find a solution.

    Thanks,
