    This was my sunconures leg band. I think it had a purple pink type tint at one time. LGA 879, I cannot track it to find out how he was or where he came from. I thought he was only 10, but passed away suddenly, like overnight. Maybe he was older than 10, does anyone know that code? I keep getting...

    Seeking Info on PBN Breeders

    Hello, I recently rescued a cinnamon green cheek with a leg band, but breeder ID is PBN. I saw on a previous thread that PBN stands for Preferred Bird Network but didn’t see any additional information besides that. Information on PBN seems pretty limited online, it does not seem to have a FB...

    What paperwork should a bird have?

    Hi, I am getting a GCC on monday from a lady that says she breeds bird in a family environment. I was wondering what paperwork the bird is supposed to come with? Are leg bands, birth certificate important? Thanks

One of them, the big English budgie male has a leg ring, which I hadn’t noticed before. he’s pretty fluffy, so I only noticed it now, but now I’m wondering if there is any information on the band I can read? Also, I was thinking about DNA testing my...

    My GCC's mysterious band number is driving me crazy...

    I got my GCC about 5 1/2 years ago and recently I have been curious about how old she actually is, so naturally I have been trying to decode her leg band in hopes that I could find some more info.

    New bird owner here- Leg banding?

    Hello! I recently purchased an IRN and he did not come with a leg band. I've been trying to do research on this, but haven't found much out. In what states are the bands required? We live in Ohio and will be moving to Oregon. What do I do if he is required to have one, but doesn't? Thank you!

    Just noticed the girls have open leg bands

    Pippin stepped up onto my hand for some seeds a while ago (really excited she trusted me enough to eat from my hand), and I noticed her leg band is open, and not a closed breeder one like I originally thought. Upon further investigation, I discovered that Sammi’s band is also open. Being...
