What is strange about #613's leg band?

Marie explains: "Both #613 and #614 had white leg bands. When they were given their temporary radio transmitters before migration, how would we tell them apart? Sara had the idea: She painted black spots on Chick #613's transmitter. We call this chick our little "holstein"! << Back to #613's life story
