    Does anyone know where I can get wingbands that are not stamped with any numbers or anything? And a kit to stamp the numbers and letters into them? Thanks.

    why would you want to get them blank? And, why would you want to stamp them yourself?

    I use tiecords on my American Gamecocks, and that makes it hard to use legbands. the current system I'm using for breeding them involves naming the birds as I don't keep that many of them. Having numbers on the bands would leave less room for the name. The legbands would be used for the cocks, legbands are used on the hens.

    I bet you could order blank bands from National Band. Harbor Freight sells a ~$10 stamping set that I bet would work fine for aluminum. I think I might try this myself actually.

    Thanks! If nothing else I figure I can buy the bands, grind the numbers off and remark them.
