Hi, I am going to try to hatch a batch of chicks. I have purebred Bielefelders, and also some hatchery Buff Orpingtons and Easter Eggers. The crosses are for a friend who just wants some fun layers. Will it be very obvious when they hatch which are the Bielefelders and which are the crosses? It's Bielefelder rooster over the various hens.

Might be sort of difficult because I believe the chicks of all of these breeds are either yellow or chipmunk.

Some people mark their eggs as to who laid them before putting them in the incubator. Apparently, using a marker doesn't harm the egg...

Do you have any pictures of how they turned out? I have Bielefelders and EE and am in the process of incubating. 😄

I bet the bell and buff crosses are beautiful!♥️

Here's a pic of the Buff/Biel cross rooster. I really like how he turned out. The hens are nice too, I can try to get a pick of them tomorrow.
