    I am learning how to make jewelry... but am VERY new. Would it be possible to make little bands for our chickens with colored beads on them? Think of how much information we could put on them!

    Any ideas?

    Anyone know how to do this??

    The birds would try to eat the beads.

    I'd be worried about the birds harassing each over to peck at the leg bands.

    I know EVERY time I go into the coop to play with the birds, they peck at my wedding ring.. It's just a standard white gold band [reminds me of a bearing race] that's gotten dull over the years.

    They ALWAYS peck at it... Only time it hurts... Ouch.
