New birds should be ringed, with a leg ring of the correct size for your species of bird. This is a standardised item, and will contain details of the bird, its breeder, and the time of birth. Some breeders fit their own personalised plastic rings too. For advice on this, speak to a breeder – and never attempt to ring a bird without learning how to do so from an expert.
