I think we are going to order some for the pijjies here at the sanctuary when we find out our new phone number. It worries me that one will accidently escape.


I've thought of doing that too, but haven't as I don't really like bands on the birds, but I think it's probably a good idea.

Ok, thanks though. I simply remembered the idea when I saw a leg ring necklace and was considering making some earrings. ... Though I have no real inclination in arts n crafts, but I love the idea.

* Ps. Cindy, a fundraiser sounds good!

What type of earrings were you thinking about, Revati?
* It would definitely be a win/win situation for everyone. Thrilled

Well, I like the necklace with a racing pigeon leg ring on a chain (follow the link for a photo: http://www.pigeonsaspets.co.uk/2010/12/22/pigeon-jewellery/), and I thought it would be funky to have a leg ring dangling from a earring hook. Just a thought.

It's a great idea.
If I can find a couple leg rings I'll see if I can do something with them and let you know. I love making jewelry.

There is a great store near where I live that I sooo enjoy going to.
Beads Galore literally has everything one would want, whether you are a just a hobbyist or hard core jewelry maker. I love it/them
I'm pretty much at the hobbyist level.

Some of those pieces on ebay are wonderful.

Oooh, that website looks fab! I love all those things but have never gotten started on actually making anything. One day though. That's too funny

Hi Marina,
here's one website you can order them from: http://www.pigeons.co.uk/pigeon-leg-rings.html
Otherwise, you could google "pigeon leg band/ring" and see what comes up. Hope this helps. Smile

Hi Marina, Hi there/Bye nice to see you here!
Welcome
Love your pet pigeon avatar! What's his/her name?

Some pet supply shops also sell snap-on pigeon leg bands. I get mine locally, in a variety of colours.

We have been considering having Pigeon Angels bands made, but it's difficult to get the relevant information onto something so small.
So I buy plastic snap-on ones and use a diamond-tip engraver to write down the initial(s) of the bird's name and my cell phone number, then I go over that with a permanent marker. I've tried other methods but this is the only one that works. Active pigeons can get even permanent ink scratched off the band in no time!
