So how do we tell each of our breeder chickens apart. In the past I have used expensive numbered bands that go around their legs. These fall off and the numbers get dirty and are hard to read. Nathan suggested we use zip ties. These are attached to the legs leaving lots of room but not enough so that they fall of. We have a color chart so just by looking at the leg we can see what number the chicken is. When it comes to breeding this is very important. Who has just laid that egg? Who is your mother? And which member has named you?
As yet they are not chipped although I did make an inquiry.
