I recently built a henhouse/chicken coop for my landlord. She has allowed me to share it. Here is the question...I got my 15 Chicks from McMurray on the 20th of May and there are in the brood box I made for our chicks. My landlord's chicks will be here this week and will be approximately the same age as mine. If there a way to mark my chicks so that I can tell them apart until they get old enough to recognize more easily? Thanks for your help! New Guy Here! Also any help identifying the chick will be greatly appreciated!

You could use small elastic hair bands like the kind for toddlers' hair. They come in lots of colors, are easy to find, and you can adjust them as the grow. Zip ties could be difficult to remove once the chick grows a bit, and if you cut the extra length off, the edges can be sharp.

Zip ties are fine, yes, in fact it is what I use. Just remember to check them frequently so that you can remove and replace as needed due to growth of the bird.
