Many chicks may look alike at hatch until feathers are grown in. Baby Poultry Leg Bands applied at hatch make it easy to identify between breeds and varieties of chicks. Use one band or multiple bands per leg as identifiers. The leg bands are a quality heavy grade plastic Elastic band that hold up well under repeated stress. The handler can easily stretch the band to go over the feet to put on or take off without pulling or twisting the chicks legs, reducing injury. Baby poultry go through the first 3 sizes of any brand leg bands fairly quickly. Once they start to get tight from the chicks growing, about every 2 to 3 weeks, remove the old band and put on the next size up. After they have graduated through all sizes they, are ready for a permanent band. 100, 200, 500 (extra bands are included) Multi Color Leg Bands Per Package.
