    Excellent idea with the HB egg! They never seem to eat enough crumbles that first week. It's prob helpful too as they associate your hand with good things. Let alone a med delivery device. Smart! I purchased some wing bands & the applier pliers. Just have to muster the courage to use them.

    It is a bit tricky to get used to and not all the applicators work right out of the box. Some modifying of the bands by bending before inserting them into the applicator makes them work easier.

    If you run into trouble start another thread and I will guide you.
