    So all this time I have been struggling with holding a chick trying to tape it and keep bandaids on and trying to adjust just right, The ripping off thier poor feathers. Then i was tagging all my babies with sale tags keep tags etc..
    and I had a baby right out of the hatcher with splay leg! let her go a day to see if she would get it togwther herself and walk but didn't happen. So i decided i was gonna find a better way! So i used the itty bitty zip ties that i use to tag the silkies until they are big enough for bands. They are easily adjustable, and dont rip out feathers. i fixed her up and set her down and she was off and running!!

    Love it! Much better than trying to keep tape on legs.
