    Im looking for just a few of those spiral leg bands for chicks. Im needing 3 of one color, 2 of another color and 4 of some other color. If that makes sense to you. Im not sure on the size, but the chicks are just a few days old. If you have any you would like to sell, just let me know.


    Thanks,
    Holly

    Right now I think I just need sizes 4 and 6. Then later when theyre older I'll need others.

    You can try searching for leg band options.

    There are some that use zip ties and some that use velcro straps.

    No matter what you use though, they'll grow out of them fast fast fast. Chick size bands for day olds get out grown in about one week, two weeks and you'll be digging a band out of the leg grown around it.

    Oh, you can make them!

    I think people go to places like craft or fabric stores and just get strips of velcro fabric stuff cut to length. Or just use zip ties from lowes or home depot and just snip off the end.
