    I recently got 20 new chicks. I can tell most of them apart except for the White Rock and the Red Stars. I went on line and the chicks look exactly alike. Is there any way to tell them apart when they are this young? We lost a 4 in transport and I am not sure of which ones they are. All the others are doing fine.

    The Red Stars will be more reddish if they are pullets, but white if they are males. It may take some time to really tell them all apart if they sent you White Rocks and all Red Star males.
