    I need to buy some leg bands for my standard sized chickens, and I was wondering what sites people order off of? My chickens are going to live at a different farm, and I want to ID them from the other chicken residents so they don't get axed. Thanks for the help!

    You can get them on Ebay and many hatcheries supply them. You can also use zip ties (from the hardware store). We use numbered metal bands on our adult bird we order from www.poultrymanssupply.com.

    So there isn't any particular site that ppl go to? I was just wondering who ppl trust on the internet, or if everyone just buys locally.

    I'm considering getting them from whitemountainsranch, they have one solid price, and you can personalize them with up to 10 letters (names!). Though the wirespirals would be a good idea for non-pets IDing.
