I did consider the wing bands but I would probably injure the chickens trying to put it through their wing. I decided on leg bands. I looked at the site http://www.nationalband.com/nbtpoult.htm and I am still debating on the last three leg bands on that site. I may get the double end clinch because you dont have to buy an 18 dollar applicator! I was wondering if the double end cinch ones would fall off then because Im sure the applicator makes it more permanent. Anyone ever bought these type of leg bands? If so I need feedback If you dont use either leg band, which one do you use? I still dont know which one to get.
