- Jack- 5 year old pacific parrotlet
It just occurred to me that Jack never got a leg band, should he have one? I'm worried he might not like it as he is a bit sensitive to having things on his feet. Thanks
No. In fact many avian vets suggest to cut them off since a looser fitting band can potentially get caught among toys and cause injury.
Many breeders use banding for record keeping purposes to keep track of who's who.
A pet doesn't NEED a band. It's not like how pet dogs need a license.
