im only new to this site and being a parrot owner, i have a african grey parrot but i was looking some more info on it and i was wondering if anyone knows if CTR is a avairy or a breeders name, i live in northern ireland if that helps... my birds ID ring says 7 CTR 09 (on its side 90 degrees ccw) V

thanks

hi

the ring is your birds id you should write the number down and keep it safe in the unfortunate case if your bird ever gets out and is found you can prove it is your bird .  the 7 is just the rings number the breeder might have ordered 20 rings 1-20 the ctr is most likely the breeders name initials and the 09 is the year the bird was born . anywere from jan to dec and the letter v is the ring size which is corret for a african grey hope this helped

does the date on the ring match the date on the papers. if the ring on lola's leg is 09 that is the year when lola was born the dna papers might you which month.

ok the 3 is the rings batch number the breeder might have ordered 10 rings 1 to 10 yours is number 3. ps uk gb means the ring came from the [parrot society] [united kingdom] [great britain] and the 96 is the year your bird was born 1996.  and the v is just the ring size for african greys. so going by the ring your grey is about 15 -16 years old

hi les
yes it can be a old ring the breeder as put on lola can you ask the breeder or the person you got lola of . the photo below is one of my rings the year is usually next to the letter v on this ring as you can see it is 10 meaning the year 2010.

The ring on Bobbys left leg reads, 10 TAM does anyone know what that means?
It is a solid ring and looks to be metal not aluminium.
Thanks.

Hi Kaz, welcome, i'm not sure what your band means, hopefully someone can help, I thought it was the breeders initials and hatch year, clearly not though!
