I've always used the colored spiral bands til now and need a system for identification that will be more specific and more permanent. Just wondering what has worked and hasn't worked for other chickeners. I'm leaning towards the numbered colored plastic bandettes but was wondering if the investment in the metal bands would be worth it or not. Seems like theres alot of different kinds of metal ones out there. What kinds have you used? And where would be the cheapest place to purchase them? Any insight or experience will be greatly appreciated!
