    Anybody have some extra bandette leg bands for sale which will fit 6 week old buff orpington pullets? I only need 8 bands so I can tell my girls apart. Any color. I don't want to pay for a whole bag. Some adult sized ones would be great, too. Anybody know of a source where you can get a small number of these bandettes? [​IMG]

    I was looking for those too without too much success...

    So, I resorted to buying Multi-purpose ties at Home Depot.
    They come in assorted colors and sizes as well as the common black color. They're working fine. Then, I just kept a logbook handy to identify them once I had them tagged.

    I wouldn't use the color red...chickens like to peck at that color too much. Also saw some velcro type tie tags..haven't tried them yet.

    good luck

    I have ties, but I'm not sure how easy it is to get them off and replaced as the chicks grow. Any ideas on that? I don't want to hurt my babies.
