    I apologize in advance for posting this here...I'm sure it is in the wrong place but I wasn't sure where to post it. I was just wondering if anyone knows of any websites where I can order the little tags that go around the chickens legs? I would appreciate any info! Thanks you!

    I use colored zip ties found on eBay for $3 for shipping and everything. I got them in 3 days

    I know I saw a website somewhere but outraged by the price. For leg bands with a number and your name with a street address on it. Any takers on the website? They were not plastic.

    I use velcro strips that I found at the craft store. They work great!
