I am getting 5-10 hens in 12 different breeds and I have several roos that I want to cross in with their own breed as well as cross in other breeds. Since I already have a difficult time with these white Cochins I would like to band the hens in the same breed so I will know who I have bred to whom and what pullets I can take back into another line. Granted some out crosses don't do well but I don't want to always breed in the same roo either. There will be uncles and aunts and all that going on so I was hoping to buy bands with numbers and different colors to keep them all separate. Where does everyone get theirs? I don't care for National Band Co. And what system works best for you? I have plenty experience in record keeping breeding animals as we have bred and showed horses, dogs and Guinea pigs. We will not be showing chickens!
