Red and Blue bands not the same size
Posted by Michael on 20th Jan 2017
We had gotten both red and blue bands to keep track of different aged layers that were all in together, but ended up needing to use both bands on the same group of birds, since we ended up with more than we had planned on. We put the bands on when we got the pullets, at 16 weeks. The blue bands started coming off the birds the first day, and within a month about half the birds had lost the bands. The red bands mostly stayed on; right now they've been on for a year and 90-95% of the birds still have them on.
