Keep multiple sizes/colors on hand to change to larger bands as young birds grow.
Leg band should easily slide up/down the bird’s leg. If too tight, the band will cut off circulation.

I got the smallest sized band they offered. They were labeled for quail. I have jumbo quail and while the band looked like it was a good fit when on, it fell right off the first time the bird put its toes together.

Easy to put on and stays there.

The clips go on easily and so far have stayed on with no issues. The colors are easy to see without being overly obvious. I did notice that they were a tad snug on our Barred Rock, which are the largest birds we have. All the smaller birds (Golden Sexlink, Ameracauna, Wyandotte, Brown Leghorn) fit with a little wiggle room. If I had all Barred Rock or a similarly larger breed, I'd go for a larger ring.

Very easy to put on and will stay on - hard to get off but they have ridges on inside and would have liked them smooth against leg. also, would like them to be not so wide.

these bands were advertised to be used on quail. which is what i was to use them for and they fell off all of the birds i banded, they did not come unclipped just completely to large.
