I am a new member in Oklahoma. I have raised chickens for about 10 years and this is the first time I have ever encountered this problem. I purchased chicks for the first time from a store that had been sexed by the hatchery. They put a metal band through the wing bones of each of the pullets. I have never encountered this before as I have always purchased directly from another hatchery. I don't know what to do about those bands. Do I leave them or remove them? If I remove them, what is the best way to do it?
