Chick and Egg ID Chart 

When we ship off chicks and hatching eggs they are labeled for easy identification. A lot of chicks look similar when they hatch, so we place color bands on their legs so when you open that box you can figure out who is who. The eggs are marked with a pencil so they can be identified. By doing this you will know what color the eggs are you  also included a list of egg colors each breed lays.
