The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

One Tie backyard poultry application

One Tie being used to secure a cock's feet.

Our neighbor needed to thin out her flock and we agreed to help.

My first time using a One Tie to secure a rooster's feet together might be a new trend for me.

It's easier than a piece of rope and seems to have zero chance of it coming loose.

I know nothing about rooster/chickens but amazing how much the feet/claws look dinosaur-raptor feet.

Is it reusable? It looks really sturdy. I’ve used zip ties for the last dozen or two dozen hens, and haven’t had to re-wrangle a single foot. But I like a reusable solution much better.
