Baby poultry leg bands - 100 Multi Color Bands Per Package. Mix of Green, Orange, Red and Purple.
Must have baby poultry identifiers. Band at hatch to tell breeds, parentage, or chicks apart from each other. The stretchy leg bands, make it easy to put them on and take off and they stay on well. Once they start to get tight from the chicks growing, about 3 to 4 weeks, go up to the next size. Size 5 - Large - 5/16" is for day old geese, ducks, turkey and for 3 to 4 week old standard size chicks.
This size is also used for horse mane braiding. We have found on our own horses that these strong and durable bands last up to 3 months! The soft non rubber bands reduce the hair breakage.
