Best I.D. Leg Bands for Chickens

There are many reasons to I.D. your chickens and it’s easy if you use leg bands. There are many types, colors, and sizes appropriate for chicks, bantams and standard breeds. The hard part is finding who sells assortments, or has quantity options.
If this is your first time using leg bands, you’ll find my choices below quite simple to put on. However, I certainly wouldn’t refuse an extra set of hands to help!
Here’s the retailers I’ve found who offer the best selections of leg bands…

Silkie Bantam 3-10-15

1st Choice…
Stromberg’s is my favorite place for color assortments and varied quantities. The minimum quantity is 50. Buy what you’ll need the first time, the shipping is a little pricey.

What Size Do You Need? | Guideline Chart for Leg Bands | Stromberg’s

Leg bands are perfect for tracking broody hens, keeping track of the ages of your birds, or if you have birds the same color that look identical.

2nd Choice…
Arcata Pet Supplies, you can order as many or as few as you like, (that’s a plus!) but they don’t offer color assortments and their styles are very limited.

Note:
To help give you an idea on sizing, TBN Ranch uses size 9 leg bands for our mature Silkie Bantams.
