    I need some ideas for keeping my chicks separated during hatching.We are raising different bloodlines and there's no way to tell some apart.Any ideas would be very helpful.

    Slip a panel of cardboard between the eggs just before lockdown to seperate them. Or watch them hatch and quickly mark them with a marker.

    Put the eggs in a mesh bag like the ones onions are sold in or two small plastic baskets that are taped together. Many breeders use this method.
