NOTE: Due to heavy orders, custom bands are now taking upward of three weeks to receive.
The American Federation of Aviculture offers three different types of closed leg bands: AFA logo stock closed aluminum bands, AFA logo custom closed aluminum bands, and AFA logo custom closed stainless steel bands.
Please note: Size requirements for individual birds may vary. The band sizes are suggested by the manufacturer. The AFA does not take responsibility for the suggested sizes. Individual states may have their own banding requirements for exotic birds. AFA cannot guarantee that these bands comply with those requirements. Each aviculturist should independently verify these requirements. The band manufacturer is closed during the month of July. Please plan your orders accordingly.

Select the type of band you would like to purchase.
These bands require a minimum order of 10 or 25 per size depending on the size. All bands have the AFA logo imprinted. A customized code consisting of two to four letters and up to four sequenced numbers can be specified. These bands can also be printed with the year and your state if desired. The letter code will be recorded to prevent issuing duplicate coding to anyone else. These bands are traceable to the breeder. Any inquiries regarding the origin of a band will be forwarded to the registered code owner. It will then be the responsibility of the code owner to contact the inquirer. Bands ordered for a succeeding year will be shipped after December 26th. These bands are available in silver, black, blue, yellow, red, green, orange, and violet.
These bands are not recommended for Hyacinth Macaws or Palm Cockatoos. Instead, we recommend using Stainless Steel Bands.
