Wing Bands and Leg Bands for Peafowl
Whether you’re a peafowl farmer, or just raising some peacocks for pets, NB&T is here to help with all your peafowl identification needs. Numbered bands are helpful for tracking breeding birds, chicks from different bloodlines, and other important information.
Leg Bands for Peafowl
Both aluminum and plastic leg bands are a great option for those who want a temporary form of identification because they are removable. Some customers prefer leg bands over wing bands because they don’t want to pierce the wing with a wing band. If you plan on leg banding peachicks, you will need to order multiple sizes and change out the bands as the peafowl grow. Below are two videos on how to band peafowl with National Band & Tag’s plastic and aluminum leg bands.

Wing Bands for Peafowl
If you want wing bands for your peafowl instead of leg bands, the Jiffy wing bands in brass (style 893B) are a very popular option. The aluminum Jiffys (style 893) work for peafowl as well. Wing bands are a great option because you can band the peachick, and the wing band will grow with them to adulthood.
