Where to buy leg bands?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm looking to buy about 50 of the aluminum leg bands for my flock so that when my 12 weekers are full grown I'll know who is who. 

Where can I buy these?  Does anyone want to sell me 50?

Thanks!

Most people use colored Zip Ties that can be purchased at WalMart or Lowe's in the electrical section. Make sure you keep a record of what bird has what color.

You can also buy numbered leg bands in different colors. More expensive, but very convenient for telling who's who at a glance.
I bought some from Nasco, but got them cheaper at a small company later on. Can't remember their name, but if you're interested, I could find it.

Ebay is a good place to search, as is eggbid.
