    Ok so sitting as I am between to Little giant bators with a grand total of 151 eggs it occurs to me for many reasons such as for know what to sale chicks for , letting new chick parents know the breed of there new babies , looking for correct color pattern comb ect and the list goes on, how is the best way to keep track of chicks. I would love to band all the little buggers but I dont have any bands othewise Im guessing it would be fairly strait forward . Other then haveing proper bands for it and I dont have acess to a bunch of colored markers or nail polish. Id like to be able to identfy type of chick and hopefully who they came from . Please help a person out . Thank you very much [​IMG]

    You can order the leg bands online. Just do a search or check some of the vendors that advertise here. The colored nail polish probably wouldn't be a good idea as the chicks will peck at it.
