    If you are looking for something to hold your pigeon/dove bands, stitch holders are convienent. I picked up some at a yard sale a few years ago and have been using them every year. They are easy to hook onto breeding cages so they are readily accessible. Link www.martinlofts.com

    Do you know where I could get 6mm snap-on bands? I've been searching in some of the websites that I've seen mentioned here but I haven't found them in sizes smaller than 6mm. It's for an eared dove, kinda like a mourning dove in size.
