    Now that my babies are bigger and starting to look like adults I would like to put leg bands on them to keep better records of who is who and when they were hatched. I can tell everybody apart now, but it might get harder in time. I have things for tempory bands for now but would like to get some more permanent ones for when they are fully grown. What size would be appropriate for Jersey Giants?
    Thanks

    My buff orps are using a 12 and wild turkey hens use a 14. I would say somewhere around there would work for Jersey Giants.
