Does anyone have any good DIY ideas for leg banding? I tried the tie strip thingy. The hen got it off of her leg pronto. Not sure what else might work at this point. I just have the one hen to band at the moment, so I hate to spend alot of money.
We had to mark her today. DH found some copper tubing from a water pipe job here at home, cut a band about 3/4"...slit one side, smoothed the ruff edges. It's been on her leg all day long so far. The zip tie, I used one a few months ago...the hen took it right off.
