    Do judges care if your birds have wing bands, the numbered kind, not the kind with your name/farm name? Does that count against you? IMO it shouldnt. I was just wondering.

    I will not do wing bands. If the show only allows wing bands, I will not show there.

    i wing band all of mine , and the judges never said a word , it is better to have more numbers on your birds to make sure you dont get any lines confused , i toe punch and wing band , and some have leg bands because some shows say they want leg bands

    We're planning on wing and leg bands. Just waiting on the kids to agree on their name for the wing bands. If I could figure out how to tattoo and GPS them, I'd probably do that too.
