With feathers on their feet, what size snap on band do you put on them and what about seamless bands for the young. All my fantails are white and I need to tell them apart.
I used to band my Indian Fantails above the hock all the time, but had trouble last year. A large cockbird got his leg all swollen up and infected below the band. I thought he would die, but he did recover. Now I band lower on the leg, even though it does mess up the muffs sometimes.Many Frillback breeders put the band above the joint in the leg... am curious if you do this with other muffed breeds? I put my bands at the normal spot between foot and joint... and haven't ever had trouble...
