    I've been looking for the rings that have the numbers on them to keep track of my chickens. WHERE DO YOU GET THEM? I've looked everywear. I guy told me to sign up for a club, and get them there, but I have no idea how to. Any answers?

    They are called leg bands.

    I have some of the plastic leg bands. When I tried them the birds pulled/pecked them off within a few minutes. Something more robust (metal?) may be in order.
