I'm embarrassed to ask it, but I can't get a hold of anything but racer bands locally. I slipped a homer band on a West of England squab, but I'm starting to think that the band may be too tight once the bird's fancy feet starting feathering in.
:confused:
Should I just go with no bands?

yes I would not use a homer band on a muffed breed, they will be too small. I find that the muffed breeds can be banded with the right size band later than say homer babies because it takes some time for the pin feathers to grow and the bands are big to allow for the feathers on the legs. I have put bands on frillbacks at 8 or more days of age..before they stay on.

No bands would be better than putting one on that is likely to cause problems once feathers come in. Can you remove it?
