leg rings for jenday conures

Post by boycie » Mon Apr 22, 2013 10:11 pm

just curious as to how old jenday chicks should be before u put a closed ring on. this is my second year to breed them and as they bred late last year i didnt get a chance to ring the chicks. this year i am well prepared have rings got. i all ready have two chicks with one left to hatch the first one is two days old and just want to know how old to ring them. thanks for looking

doesnt it have to be within 3 or 4 weeks with baby birds or maybe sooner? jendays are conures right,which are smaller than greys. how are the little ones? :)

yes they are conures and are smaller than greys. little ones are doing fine now they are starting to colour up now. i put the rings on when they were 12 days old and hope to get them dna in the next few weeks.here is a pic of the chicks.
