Lina, do you know if its a split ring or closed?
and do you know the age of your bird?
sounds to me like it could be a quarantine number? or import number...
if you give a little history behind getting him/her it would be helpful.. :thumbsup:

Hi Kenzie's ring is closed
We got him due to his previous owner's son apparently being  involved in a RTA which had left him paralysed.  It seemed a genuine story, we think Kenzie is around 9mths old his eyes are not all black baby eyes but he still has dark eyes .. the tips of his tail feathers are dark in colour.  We were told that he was from a breeder in chesterfield and was told that the hatch certificate would be forwarded on but to date we havnt received anything.  He still shows immature behaviour such as doing a scooter movement with his foot when he wants to come out of his cage.  Just immatating whistles and words that arent really that clear yet.  We just fell in love with him because he seemed a friendly chilled out little fellow... he loves my husband (bit jealous about that) tends to strike out at females but tending not to pay him any attention when he does this ..oh and i dont think the house will ever be clean again  ..many thanks for your input

Hiya Lina,
Well, he seems a happy fellow, i would say in this case that the number you see may be the hatch number, meaning he is 398, so basically he is chick 398 that the breeder has hatched ?
It is a high number, but the breeder could also have other birds, i dont think there is a law to the  numbering of certain species differently,so maybe he has budgies, tiels etc
If your happy with him, then its nothing to worry about, certainly seems a happy chappy so no worries  :thumbsup:

My young grey is forever getting her ring caught (not enough to do damage but enough to stress her) i will probably get my vet to cut it off her!  I rescue dogs  and dont know half the ages of them ! but  I LOVE THEM so i dont care how old they are, what difference does it make what species they are?

Tiamai, if you are having the ring cut off, you could just take a photo of it and put the info on paper and have it signed by a vet, just in case you ever need to prove her ages or anything like that for whatever reason. But you are right, it is not really important what age they are when it comes to loving them, it might be useful to know when it comes to dealing with health issues though.

Usually the last 2 numbers are the year of birth, V is the ring size. My Greys last 3 are 09 V, as he was born in 2009. Not sure about the other numbers

Hi

I fineally got close enough to see his ring and this is what is on it.

4PS UK 535

Can anyone help me make sense of this as i would really like to know when he was born if you can from the numbers.

Guessing its the 4th bird that year/clutch and the breeders initials
then born in the uk
but struggling with the 535?

Thanks

Hi
It sounds like a UK Parrot Society ring
Can't help you with the 535, could be the breeders
code.
Is the ring coloured or stainless steel?

Hi
They don't always have the year of birth on them.
Do you know who bred your Grey?

 I believe Mowglis problems started with the ring , i dont believe it was put on correctly thus causing untold problems with his foot. the first thing i did was get Mr Jones (avian Vet) to remove it. I have kept it thou
