Anyone know a good place to get them?
I need them too!
You can take a look at Kuhl Corp.
www.kuhlcorp.com They have legbands, but it may only be in mass quantities. Take a look though!
I found a small package of colorful tiny wire wraps at Tractor Supply.
After looking around and not really seeing what I wanted, I was talking to my bf and we are going to make some! He is a contractor so he knows how to do all that stuff. We're going to cut and smooth some aluminum bands then etch the custom numbers in them...
I will post pics after they are done, and we could custom make them for others too!
I bought a great big container of zip ties. They come in lots of colors, fit any bird, and are cheap.
I don't have a whole lot of hens but I use the teeny tiny elastics from the dollar store. 800 elastics in only about 7 different colors but you can combine them to make a unique color combination. they fit just right
the only ones that don't work is the color red for obvious reasons
hope this helps
I am in need of the same, either leg bands or bandettes. It does not appear that any of the local feed/livestock supply stores in my area carry them. I have just started a project with golden campines and need to be able to identify where they all came from. I have been looking online and don't really know whose product is the best and cheapest.
I am going to make some, custom... so we will be able to start making them for peeps here on BYC... are you looking for aluminum or plastic?
I am going to label mine
G1.1, G1.2, G1.3 etc for the first generation
G2.1, G2.2, G2.3 etc for the second
and so forth. That way I will know when I got them, how many I have at each batch, and the individual itself.
