If you have more than one pen of the same variety, different colors can be used to ensure a number in both pens will not be repeated or each year a different color can be used. Solid unnumbered bands can be used to double mark. For example we use the numbered bands on everybody then, put on a second band to mark the ones we like the best in that group for quick identification.
Easy to put on. Put the end through the head and start the zip, slide it around the leg, zip until the band is in place. Make sure the band is loose enough it turns easily and slides up and down a bit then, snip off the excess, you are done!
They can be used on growing birds however, not recommended unless you really watch their growth closely. Birds do the majority of their growth between hatch and 16 weeks. Birds under 16 weeks, make sure to leave plenty of growing room. Before the band starts to get tight, replace it with a new one.
It is suggested to use a new band on each bird. Used bands can harbor virus's and bacteria moving an illness from bird to bird.
Do the numbers wear off? The numbers are heat stamped onto the tie. Although durable, they may eventually show wear.
