    There are lots of choices you may want to look on eBay for leg bands....and egg cartons.com for your cartons.

    For cartons, I got a great deal at EggCartonsOnline.com. I got wisprinted cartons for a great discount and with free shipping. (I don't sell at farmer's markets, just to friends.) I also got bands on Ebay for a good price. We have a small flock, so it was more cost effective to get a small bag of bands.

    The rubber legs bands are cheap on ebay. colored zip ties are cheap locally. I use metal bands which cost more but are numbered.

    I've been trying to decide on leg bands for when they're full grown. Do the metal ones chaffe or cut them at all? I've seen more of those than any other and I just want to make sure it doesn't hurt them.
