BANDING YOUR BIRDS

Banding budgie chicks is usually done near 8 to 10 days. If the band falls off, just keep putting it on for the next couple days until it stays on. Banding other birds may be sooner or later depending on the type of bird. Smaller birds like Finches and Canaries may be banded between 5 to 10 days old.

Open ring bands can be purchased from some pet shops and local clubs, although closed ring bands are usualy only sold to members of clubs. Check you local club and/or pet shop and see if they have a source for bands if you want them.

Another good site with banding info and where to get bands and types of bands.
