Great leg bands. They do not cut into the chickens legs like other bands do. Nice bright colors.

They went on easily. The problem is that they also come off very easily. I would not purchase these again because of the rate of which so many have just fallen off and now I cannot identify the different flocks.

These are large enough so as not to bind on the leg as they grow. I tried the coil type thinking it would expand but it didn't. I had to do emergency surgery on quite a few of my chickens. Bought these and problem solved. Now we know how old they are by the color coded bands.

I really like my hens leg bands. Now I can tell who is who. I just wish they had a package that had multicolored bands in it.

Bands are made well and snap tight. I have ordered more as these were way too big for my Cayuga and Runner ducks. The bands say not writable but I was able to write on them with a sharpie and it didn’t rub off.
