    You can buy leg bands from most commercial hatcheries and livestock supply stores. You can google; Strombergs, Murray McMurray, Nasco Farm and Ranch and Tractor Supply Company. i'm not sure what size your birds require butmost catalogs have a sizing guide.

    The ABA recommends 15 mm bands for all feather legged bantams, male and female.
