    If you're in Central PA a lot of the AG stores, Tractor Supply and even Pet Stores sell them.

    I found different colored zip ties at TSC. They were small and not too thick and had 5 different colors. With just 11 hens I wanted to band, that was plenty for me by putting some on left leg, some on right, different combo's etc. If you had a whole lot of chickens I guess a poultry supply place would have more selection.

    I didn't get bands, but bought peepers at nationalband.com They were the cheapest by far.
