    Hi all,

    I'm new to BYC, I became a chickenaholic in March 2013. My husband and I started with 5 red pullets and 2 leghorn from TSC. We have since bought 2 Black Jersey Giants, 2 Buff Orpingtons, and incubated and hatched 5 Lavender Orpingtons and 5 Blue Orpingtons, totaling 21 chickens.

    I couldn't imagine how attached I would become to "my" flock. I wanted to come up with a fun identification leg band, so after trial and error, I found a design that works great.
