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. 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.
Where to Buy Leg Bands
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.
To help give you an idea on sizing, TBN Ranch uses size 9 leg bands for our mature Silkie Bantams.
