Re: leg band

Hey Brandon, Welcome to the forum

There have been several threads on this topic, although how much they will help will depend on where you are in the world:

Leg Band???

Leg ID Band???

What exactly is written on the band?

Re: leg band

I couldn't locate my Eclectus' legband on any of the registries, but I posted it to the legbandnumbers yahoo group and someone recognized it. They emailed a friend who emailed their friend who turned out to be my breeder. If you don't have luck with the online databases, try there.

Re: leg band

How old is your bird? My CAG was bred in Fl and his band # is similar to yours. On his band the 1st letters identify the breeder the next is Fl for Florida, then comes 94 the year he was born. Some bands also tell in which order the chicks hatched, i.e. 1, 2, or 3 ect.

Re: leg band

So you have a bird that was born in Florida, in 2000, to a breeder's whose ID is JD. The 18 and the 12 could identify the pair and the baby (it could be something like your bird is the 12th baby from the pair number 18).

Re: leg band

Hi Brandon and welcome to the forum, the two things that stand out as pretty certain is the FL for Florida and the 00 for a 2000 hatch, the JD will be the breader ID the 12 18 could be month and day of hatch, but I don't think so ,closed bands have to be put on in the first few weeks after the chicks hatch, unless the breader makes their own, or have a band maker with really quick turn around time its unlikely, as mentioned the yahoo groups are a great resource for finding band info.......

Re: leg band

I don't think the breeder would be able to tell you that.
