    Does anyone have 6 legbands to fit Silkies that I can buy from them? I've scoured the internet and can only find in larger quantities, and just don't need that many.

    I have 3 Silkies and just want a total of 6 bands, 2 each of 3 different colors so we can identify which is what name. lol Want to have a spare for each, also, that's why I'm looking for 6 total.

    Please let me know if anyone can help me out with this.

    TIA!

    Maybe look at Ebay. I'll be looking into colored & numbered ones myself.

    In a pinch tho you could use a thin strip of colored velcro... the ones you can get at the dollar store to tie up cords, they're easily cut with scissors to cut them down to the size & width you want, & easily removable when you find the legbands you're really wanting [​IMG]

    Thanks all. I'll email the person on ebay. My silkies are +/- 7 weeks old, so am not sure what size I'd need. Maybe I need to get some mixed sizes, since the price for the smaller ones is for 24.

    Thanks for the help!
