I tried to search this topic but not much came up, I also looked on ebay and found a few interesting products but I want to do a little research first. I'm sure this topic has been covered, but I had a hard time finding it. :eek:

Is it too late to band my 5 \6 year old adult pigeon? He is a feral that I rescued at 2 weeks old, and I have never banded him, or any of my past pigeons. It would be nice to band him and any future rescues in case our paths cross or if they need alittle bit of a help in the future.

I understand pigeons should be banded when they are babies, but I'm not quite sure how to brand an adult. Would you use a clip on brand?.. and super glue it shut? :confused:

Again, my apologies if this topic has been covered multiple times.

Just use Numbered or Personalized clip on bands, and don't glue them, If anyone is determined & wants to take off a band they will find a way!!!

I always wished I could find a split metal band with the ability to put my email address on it in case birds ever got loose. Haven't found anything with enough characters that could be made in groups of less than 100 though. :(

I thought plastic bands eventually crack and come off with time?
