Not so strange request? My folks are new to raising chickens (they have 12) and are wanting to come visit us- 700 miles away- but are looking at putting their chickens in with my brothers for the duration. I cannot find any leg bands that are not sold in mass quantities so would appreciate any help. Also, is it safe for them to put their chickens in with my brothers? They did come from my brothers brood? but have been with my parents for a few months and we're concerned about whether it's safe or not. Any info and advice is so appreciated! God bless, itsaduck. PS- I'd love to get some really good layers for my parents so any advice on that is welcome too.
