Default Removal of Pet Store Tags

Hi Everyone!

I purchased my budgies at a pet store and they each have an identification tag on their leg with a number on it. I do not see any reason why they should still have to wear them now that they have a home.

Will the vet be able to clip them off for me or am I supposed to keep them on?

Sorry if this is a silly question. These are my first budgies or bird of any kind.

Those tags can stay on their whole lives If they become an issue, like the budgie is constantly trying to get it off, or it catches on things, the vet can clip it off, but usually you leave them on.

They are put on the chick when they are very young, and most of them just grow up with it as a permanent adornment on their leg

Don't worry, no question is silly! That's how we learn

Hello and welcome to TB, As Star said no question is silly here. Those tags usually have when they were born on them. Hope your budgies are settling in if you post a picture we can tell you what sex and roughly how old they are, also what mutation they are.

if you can (unlike me) get to tame the bird and take the number down, it can help identify your bird should - heaven forbid - the bird get out.

I think both of my remaining birds are ringed.

These bands are seamless and very rarely is there any problem. Make sure that there are no toys in the cage that could become entangled. Budgies usually ignore bands and they are a way to trace the bird, and "usually" reveal the year that the bird was hatched. If you decide to have the band removed make sure that this is done by an avian vet.
If you trim you budgies nail's yourself or have you vet do it, write the
band numbers down and save.

However, if the breeder used an open band, and it's partly open. It's better to take it off. As long as there is no seam, your bird should be fine.

Very good points everyone, as I do not plan on clipping their wings. I am letting their flight feathers grow back in. It makes me so sad when they try to fly and they cannot. It is their natural right as little birdies to fly. (even if it is just around the house)

The bands are fully closed, so I do not have to worry about them getting tangled.

I will take the numbers down when I get home to my babies later!
