Question About Leg Rings

Recommended Posts


this is my first post ever. I would like to know if a budgie leg ring with numbers on it still accurate with colour/year age. Awkward question, but I read somewhere that if it's a split ring with numbers, then the colour of ring is not age related.

Sorry for a late reply, but I don't think leg rings have anything to do with age or color of the budgie. I've bought two budgies from the same place and only one of them had a leg ring. Usually, the rings are just for the breeder/seller to keep track of the bird and don't have any other specific purpose. (it could be identifying gender or age, but that's not always the case.)

Yes they are.  The Budgerigar Society determines the colours for each year.  This year we are using black.
