    When my baby Easter Eggers and Welsummers arive, will I be able to tell the breeds apart? I'm supposed to be splitting my order and don't want to give away the wrong birds.

    Sometimes it's really hard to tell what chick is what breed. It's amazing how they change so much as they grow......I would just look online or in a catalog if you have one with chick pics.......

    My Wellies were more brown than my EE's. The EE's had more of a gray tint. Plus my EE's kinda had fluffy cheeks, and the Wellies look like they have mascara on. My profile pic is of a Wellie chick.
