What kind of band can I use on Chick's to know who's who? I have Maran's!
I use small bandettes on chicks and just change them when they get older. They come off easily and are reusable. no chance of getting too tight or snagged on something like coil types or zip straps.
OK call me stupid but what is a bandette and where do you find them?
I just wanted to tell you.. I marked my chicks with fingernail polish and Non-toxic craft paint. It's worked like a charm.
No such thing as stupid. half the bird people I speak with never heard of a bandette.

They are plastic and easy to put on and remove. Will not snag on anything. Which I think is important for a free ranging bird.
The leg band's! What color would be best?
There really isn't a best Color most people use the colors to tell age for example Blue number equals 2007 hatch - Some use to tell laying age
Blue started laying 2007
Some use to signal breeding line for example I send a blue band with mine to signal Bluebell Silkies Bred
