Wing bands

Discussion in 'Managing Your Flock' started by yinepu, Feb 20, 2013.

  1. I'm looking into getting numbered wing bands for my birds (mostly large fowl dual purpose chickens).
    It will help a lot knowing bloodlines, parentage and so on so I can keep accurate records.

    I know there are several on here who have used them. The only confusion I have come across is concerning which size to get. Most of the suppliers just have sizes listed.. but don't go into any detail as to what size for what type of bird.

    So my questions for everyone who bands.. which brand do you prefer and what sizes did you use for your type/size of birds?
