    This
    is a link to an earlier post regarding this information. I am not sure if the link will work, but if not, I did a goolge search for chicken leg bands for silkies and it was the fourth post to come up. It has a lot of info in it so it may be helpful to you. Hopefully it will work.

    edited to read: I tried it and it worked!
