    Hey!!!

    Last post I was looking for some ways to seperate my chicks so I can identify them. We only have five, and every member in my family has one.--that's why we need the identification methods.

    I only got one method: leg bands/zip ties

    Does anybody else have different ideas? That'd be cool, and my chicks' names are:
    Jinx
    BigMac (BK)
    Marshmellow
    Skits
    Daisy

    If you like these names, please comment! Some of my siblings are a bit skeptical of the names...

    So, if you have any identification methods, please reply, or if you think the names are cool, please reply!

    Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    use food coloring dots on their heads if they're light colored, just DON'T use red because they will pick at it incessantly. Green, blue, orange, pink, yellow, or leave one unmarked. There are companies that make the plastic wrap-around leg bands, too.
