The Parrot Society UK Ring Scheme.
The Parrot Society UK ring scheme is operated for our members, so they can order rings for their own birds, thus enabling you to use coded rings to identify your youngsters, a precaution that is necessary in this day and age.
The scheme is run in partnership with AvianID
There are different types of rings for different applications.
The Split plastic ring that is for your own use to identify birds, are easily applied and removed if required.
The Closed ring, which can only be fitted to newly, hatched chicks, are colour coded for the year and can carry your own allocated number plus The Parrot Society UK with year. These are the most popular and are for life, in order that your bird can be traced back to you through its lifetime.
The Stainless Steel Split ring is used, if it is unwise to disturb the sitting hen at the early stages of rearing their young or when a bird is Surgically Sexed. They are fitted with special applicators and are very difficult to remove. They are the type I use for my African Greys.
The sizes shown are given in good faith and are based on the best information available. If you disagree with any of the sizes quoted below, please contact either AvianID or the PSUK office to inform us of your experiences.
