A chicken Hill Poultry Original. Zband Leg Bands ~ They don't fall off, to us they look better than a large numbered spiral, less bulky and better colors, Fit the shape of the leg better than a round band, easy to put on, one size fits large fowl and bantam chickens, ducks, geese, turkey, peacock, gamebirds and multiple uses for poultry related innuendos. No more buying 4 or 5 different sizes to fit your birds. Fits sizes 7, 9, 11, 12, 14 See our other auctions for different colors of Zbands.
- Numbered Leg Bands are 5" long and fit; Chickens, Ducks, Geese, Turkeys, Game birds, One size can accommodate all of your flock. No more buying a band for every size bird!
- Numbered bands are great for breeders that mark eggs with the parent numbers, showing, NPIP, hatching boxes, just to know who is who, for use around the farm.
- ZBands will not fall off. No more picking up bands off the ground and trying to locate which bird it came off of.
- Aesthetically pleasing, the thin .14" wide lets the viewer concentrate on the birds leg, not an overpowering band. A must for shows!
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. ZBand's are numbered from 1-200 which, makes it less likely to repeat a number from year to year. 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 on the cable ties then, a glued layer of flexible soft poly covers the numbers so they won't rub off.
