    Can you tell the difference between Lady Amhersts and Red Goldens when they hatch?

    If you look around the eyes,the amherst have a blueish look.

    Would it be difficult for a beginner?

    Thats why I have a separation in my bator. Then I mark them after they hatch.

    Lady Amherst legs will be more gray and the Red Golden will be more yellow.

    I have noticed on amhersts that we hatch,they have a small black spot located behind their eyes,,we just hatched a new bunch yesterday,and I can get a side by side pic of each if you want,so you can look for the black spot.we hatch reds,yellows,dark throated reds,and amherst each week(soon to be done now) and we used to zip tie each chick to identify,,but now we only mark the amherst,,and I'm considering not doing that anymore.
