We sell a variety of band storage boxes to try to meet the needs of a variety of breeders. As a pigeon breeder most of my life, I recognize the need to have a variety of market bands in the loft. Some uses of marker bands are: Mark all the cocks and hens. Use a single color or combination of colors to mark a family of pigeons. By using a narrow line band, you might put a red and green on the same leg to identify all the young from a special pair. If you are raising some special birds for a particular race, mark each bird you raise for that race. If you raise White Homers for the release business or young Racers to fly in a team, each team member gets a special color.
