Is it permissible to put leg bands on day-old quail? It would be the tiny colored zip ties you get at wally world..............and put on loose enough of course, with the tag end cut even with the clinch.
I've done it on 1-week old chicks, and didn't have any problems,but was wondering if anybody had ever done that right out of the bator. Yeah, there was a little curiousity from the others, but nothing that caused any injuries or other problems. Just was wondering about the stability of the chicks right out of the bator, since the first few hours is a slight challenge in walk/run coordination. But it doesn't take long before they are like little road runners.
