band

  1. General Discussions
    Hi Birdists, I've been searching the web everywhere, and possibly asking the wrong questions. Cosmo has a band on his right leg and I can't figure out how to interpret it. All this time I've been assuming he is a ring-necked dove, but all I know for sure is that he is a dove. Here is a...

    So, I'm really new to all of this pigeon racing stuff, and recently bought some pigeon racing bands from ARPU. A buddy of mine keeps telling me they're fake. The thing is, I ordered them straight from ARPU. He says since there's no metal in them, and that they're fully plastic, they're not...

  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Found a blue banded white pigeon in a corner by the door at the Discovery Channel headquarters, by the intersection of Georgia and Colesville, in Silver Sprind, MD. I'm at work, so I couldn't grab him, but I took him a deep dish of water. Google says they get thirsty, so I found a...

    Could someone guide me in banding pigeons? I see videos of how to band and when to band, but nothing really tell me the details of the band such as what size to get (if there are different sizes) or what is a fair price for bands. I would also like to know what information I should have on the...

    Does anyone know where we can search for a dove's leg band code? It's nowhere to be found on the ADA website. I'd like to make sure my bird's leg band information is up to date since her address just changed. Thanks!

    I have 4 new squabs that are almost 3 weeks old without bands. I missed it totally as I got busy in week 2 and then it was too late as the bands would not slide up! What are my choices at this point ? I have used NPA size 8 in the past and I do like the idea of a band as it enables me to note...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi all -- I found a lost pigeon and am currently following all the instructions for temporary care (spacious cage, grains, water, etc.) That said, its band does not follow the convention listed on any of the resources provided. It reads NPA SHU 8 13 866. If it helps, the 13 is written smaller...

    Hello all, I just got an eight-year old Delbar white homer and noticed today how tight his AU band is. It can slide around at all. No up or down, no around. His leg does not seem swollen, but as anyone with a tight ring on knows. This must hurt! It is a 2005 AU band and I am wondering what...

  16. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    White racing homer found in Western part of MICHIGAN. This bird has a band that consists of the number 2010 (I presume the year), a logo of a pigeon in silhouette, and a four digit number. I can't seem to find a group that uses this as their band. Anybody know? Would like to find the owner if...
  17. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Dear Pigeon-Talk, Where is the best place to buy bands for Ringneck Doves and which do you recommend? I was thinking about purchasing some from doveline.com, since I am member of the A.D.A., but I am just curious as to what you guys think.

    Viktor and Crixus have managed to hide an egg from me, and I noticed a squeaker amongst the boiled eggs yesterday. Sneaky. Eyes still closed, I think it hatched a day or two ago at most. They aren't 'sport' pigeons, but I think it would still be wise to band it. I have no need for a large...
