    I would like to know where to buy some also. Plus, while we are on this topic, how do I know what size to get for my chicks? We have chicks of different sizes, plus I may keep bands on some of our Australorps when they are grown because they look identical. I would like to be able to tell them apart.

    I was just looking at some chicks online at Meyer Hatchery and they have leg bands. If I order chicks from them, I plan to add some leg bands to my order. I am sure you could order them without ordering chicks.

    This link should take you right to them:
