    We just hatched out first first peachicks from our birds. [​IMG] I want to wing band them but was hoping to get some opinions on what type/brand is best? I did a search and found a lot of places that sell them and a lot of different types. In the past (with chickens) we've just used leg bands but for the pea's I'd rather do wing bands but am not sure the best process, etc. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I use the 893 Jiffy. I order two sets same # and put one in each wing....just incase one comes out...If you pay for set-up you can have your name on back side. Lot of places stock them, this is were they are made. They also sell the leg bands.
