I.D. Leg Bands for Chickens

This 4 month old Silkie is wearing a Size 9

Here’s a simple how-to video on how to put on leg bands. This is the best way to identify your birds or keep track of multiple flocks.¬† My birds all look identical, each leg band has a highly visible number making it easy to know which hen is which.¬† They come in various sizes and colors so it’s not at all hard finding your specific preference.

Many chicken keepers use brightly colored zip ties, I did too for awhile, but they are hard to get on and off and they get brittle with age.

I got mine HERE or you can get them at Murray McMurray

It’s a Wonderful Life Indeed

I posted this precious video once before, but this is something you just can’t see too many times, so one more time folks… enjoy.
