It's so good to know this, now I won't have to spent 5 - 10 minutes trying to see the year on the ring I can just look at the colour. Hurrah! :wub: Of course I will still have to check with older birds.

It must be different here because I have a 2004 with a blue ring a 2005 tiel with a green ring and 2 show 2006 birds with red rings.

 

Monty has a silver ring but a metal huge one because he is big :D

I'm not sure what the USA does with colours either.

Do rings have the month of birth on them

Do rings have the month of birth on them

NO. The rings are distributed yearly so they have a symbol and a year on it. Like X8 or -8 that shows a 2008 bird. This symbol and number goes vertically up the ring while all other numbers and letters go around the ring. It would be too hard to get the month on the rings too. Breeders should keep records and be able to tell a purchaser which date that particular bird hatched.

im eloise, i have 2 birds, one has no band and the other i bought with a gold band..... i bought her in the adult section.... i dont know if shes 20 months or if shes 6 years? if so i need to get another budgie to breed with! im really hoping she is 1.8 years so i dont have to get another, but shes really mean and attacks my other budgie. so it might be a blessing in a disguise

You should put some pictures up in your own thread :)

 

Then we can suggest which one to breed with.

It's most likely she's a 2012 bird. Can you read the year on the ring? It should be printed sideways, with a symbol, and the numbers 12.
