  1. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    I got my 2017 AU bands in from Foys today. Why does everything have to keep getting cheaper, cheesy, and useless? These damned things are 100% plastic. They don't even have the aluminum insert anymore. :(

    As a newcomer I must admit that I don't understand the logic of banding. Bear with me as I explain please. I purchased some breeder homing pigeons. They are banded. I have one pair with eggs. I've decided to AU band the little ones. But it seems odd to me that you can just buy bands and put them...

    Will it be a problem if I race an Au banded bird with an IF band in an IF race? And the other way around? Is this big deal or can my birds still participate in both if they have both? -Hiran

    I'm trying to purchase custom bands for my Homing Pigeons. I was told that the bands come in either 1/4 inch inside diameter or 3/8 inch inside diameter. Does anyone know what the inside diameter is of a standard AU band? (I would just measure the ones I have, but they're at home and I'm not.)
