Style #890 Zip – NB&T’s Most Popular Wing Band

Wing Bands are a great identification option for poultry. You can put them on day-old chicks, the band will grow with the bird and stay on them for life. National Band & Tag offers multiple styles of wing bands to meet your needs. But if you aren’t sure which band is best for you, we always recommend the style #890 Zip Wing Band!

The Style #890 Zip is National Band & Tag’s most popular wing band! There are two main reasons as to why our customers love this wing band for their poultry: tamper-resistant and highly customizable.

TAMPER-RESISTANT: This poultry wing band is pre-formed with a strong tamper-resistant seal when sealed with our applicator. As you can see in the picture below, once the band has been sealed, the eyelet is now re-formed. So, if the eyelet is messed with, the band can not be re-used. The permanent seal also keeps the band from falling off the bird with normal wear and tear.



CUSTOMIZATION:

SIZE: We have three different sizes to choose from. The -2.75 (1” / 25.4mm), -3 (1 ¼” / 31.75mm), and -4 (1 ½” / 38.1mm). The size 890-3 is the most widely used size, with size 2.75 being used for smaller birds and size 4 for larger birds.

COLOR: We have multiple colors to choose from in both enamel and fusion colors. You get to pick the top color, but the inside color will vary.

EYELETS: The Style #890 Zip has a separate eyelet piece (compared to the style #892 which is made from a drawn tube of metal to form the eyelet). This allows the #890 to have a customized eyelet piece. Colored Eyelets or Stainless-Steel eyelets are available.

STAMPING VS LASER ETCHING VS FUSION MARKING: Most customers prefer stamped wing bands. Stamping can be done on any color band, with a minimum quantity of 100 bands. Laser etching and fusion marking have limits on band size, colors, and the minimum number of bands that must be ordered. Text and serial numbers are included in the price of the band. Logos and barcodes and available for an additional fee. You can see more information on options available here: www.nationalband.com/zip-890

National Poultry Day – 2024

March 19th is National Poultry Day, a time to celebrate the incredible contributions of poultry to our diets, economies, and cultures worldwide. From the everyday chicken to the Thanksgiving turkey, poultry plays a significant role in our lives.

Poultry is any domesticated bird used for food. Varieties include chicken, turkey, goose, duck, Cornish game hens, and game birds such as pheasant, squab, and guinea fowl. National Band & Tag manufacturers identification products for all the birds listed above and more! This year’s goal for National Poultry Day is to make doing business with NB&T even easier.

Don’t waste your money on cheap stainless steel wing bands!

See why National Band & Tag’s weldable stainless steel wing bands (Style 890-4SS) are a higher-quality band than the competition:

MATERIAL: Our material is thicker, thus guaranteeing a more robust weld and stronger wing band. The material of our competition is very thin, making the wing bands fragile and breakable.

STAMPING: NB&T’s stamping is permanent. The marking on our competition’s bands can be easily erased by scratching it, thus completely losing the ID number.

SIZE: The shape of the wing band from the competition does not allow the growth of the bird’s wings, which can cause problems. Ours is longer, allowing it to grow with the bird.

LOGOS: We keep records of all custom stamped logos to guarantee that they are not duplicated.

WELDING: We sell the spot welder to go with our weldable wing bands.

We have been producing wing bands since 1902. Our years of experience and happy customers is the proof that our product is superior. Don’t be fooled by cheap alternatives! Contact us at [email protected] or 859-261-2035 to get a free price quote.

Stamped Logos for Wing Bands

Interested in personalizing your wing bands even more with a stamped logo? Below are a few examples from customers of a custom made steel logo, used to stamp the image into wing bands. There is a one time charge of $200-$500 (or more depending on the detail) to have your stamp block made. We retain the logo for future orders. Logos will last for a very long time when stamping aluminum. However, stainless steel will degrade the life of the logo image, so the logo may need to be replaced over time.

The 4 star logos above are available to anyone at no additional fee.
Shown on green aluminum with white paint fill (paint fill is an additional fee).

To get a quote for your custom made logo stamp block, we will need a copy of your logo.

Helpful Hints for submitting your logo artwork.

  • Black and white line art
  • PDF or EPS file type
  • Artwork should scalable (vector file) and as close to actual size as possible
  • Bold lettering is okay if you are NOT getting Paint Fill
  • Outlined lettering is suggested if you ARE getting Paint Fill

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.

Style 1242 -22 leg band is recommended for adult peahen. Style 1242 -24 leg band is recommended for adult peacocks. (Please note that National Band & Tag is not responsible for the incorrect leg band size being ordered. Measuring your bird’s leg is the best way to find the correct size leg band. Learn more on how to measure a bird’s leg here.)

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.

National Poultry Day

March 19th is National Poultry Day! It’s a day when we recognize domesticated birds that are raised for meat or eggs. “Poultry” includes chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, quail, pheasants, guineafowl, squab, and other domesticated birds.

National Band & Tag manufactures a variety of products for poultry identification such as wing bands, leg bands, and clip-on blinders. We started out selling wing bands and leg bands for chickens back in 1902. To celebrate National Poultry Day, we are recognizing chickens by creating a side by side history timeline of chickens, NB&T, and how the industry grew in the 1900s.

History of Chickens, the Broiler Industry, and National Band & Tag in the 1900s

(Click the pictures below to make them larger.)

National Poultry Day - Chicken Timeline from 1900s

National Poultry Day - History of Chickens

 

 

Chickens & The Broiler Industry History:

1800s – 1900s:  Chickens are mostly owned by backyard farmers who use them for eggs. They are considered a delicacy, usually only eaten for holidays, special occasions, or when they are no longer producing eggs. By the beginning of the 1900s, a few entrepreneurs start selling young chickens in the summers for meat as a side business for their family farms.

1916: Pedigree chicken breeding starts. Founded when Robert C. Cobb Senior purchased a farm in Littleton, MA, forming Cobb’s Pedigreed Chicks.

1920s: Vitamin D was discovered in the early 1920s, which led to a revolution in poultry keeping. Hens could now survive through the winter months with Vitamin D supplements and go on to produce healthier chicks in the spring. Now that they can be raised indoors, people start building designated chicken coops. This all helped reduce the high mortality rate of chickens.

1923: Cecile Steele is the pioneer of the commercial broiler industry. Steele ordered 50 chicks for egg production; by mistake, she received 500 chicks. Instead of returning them, she saw an opportunity. She waited until the chickens reached 2 pounds live weight and sold them for a profit at 62 cents a pound. She increased her numbers in 1924 to 1,000 chicks, 10,000 in 1926, and 26,000 in 1928.

1939-1945: WW2 creates a ration on beef, pork, and lamb. People are encouraged to raise and eat more chicken. By the end of the war, Americans are eating 3 times more chicken than they were before the war.

1942: The government approves a new form of cleaning and packing ready-to-cook whole chickens in ice in wooden crates.

1948: Post war, “Chicken of Tomorrow” contest encourages breeders to create bigger, better broilers. Arbor Acres White Rocks’ white-feathered birds beat out the higher-performing Red Cornish crosses from the Vantress Hatchery. These two breeds would eventually be crossed and become the Arbor Acre breed whose genetics now dominate poultry farms worldwide today.

1950: Broilers are now the #1 source of poultry meat. Almost all Americans now have a modern, bottom cooling refrigerator, which has set a new standard of food storage and food safety

1952: The commercial broiler industry begins its economic boom. Specially bred meat chickens (“broilers”) surpass farm chickens as the number one source of chicken meat in the United States.

1970s: The broiler industry focuses on nutritional discoveries, disease eradication programs, and genetic improvements.

1980s: Consumers are starting to prefer cut-up and further-processed chickens to the traditional whole bird. Chicken surpasses pork consumption in 1985.

1990s: Chicken becomes the top-selling meat, surpassing beef. The movement towards natural, organic birds and eggs begins with more attention towards animal welfare.

 

National Band & Tag History:

1902: Joseph Haas starts to manufacture poultry leg and wing bands. He had been informed that breeders were improving their flocks, and it was necessary to distinguish one fowl from another. Visualizing the possibilities of a new industry, Haas went to work designing a few patterns of bands. Crude at first, they improved with recommendations from customers and experimental projects. He continued to make improvements until he came up with bands that worked. Ads were placed in poultry magazines, and although he had no competition, orders were slow.

1914: National Band & Tag makes its first move from a small barn to a garage, still in Newport, KY. NB&T now employs 3 people, one being Haas’s youngest son who was 11 years old.

1926: Business takes off for National Band & Tag! With the start of the broiler industry, more and more people are now raising chickens. The business moves from the garage to a building on Orchard St. in Newport, KY. Haas’s eldest son joins the business, and NB&T now employs 10 people.

1939: National Band & Tag invents Anti-Pix Chicken Glasses to help stop cannibalism in flocks. A year later in 1940, the “Jiffy” wing band is invented as an alternative to the “Zip” wing band.

1952: Now shipping worldwide, and profiting from the broiler industries’ economic boom, NB&T relocates from Orchard St. to a larger building on York St., Newport KY, which is where it still is today.

1957: C-LESS peepers are invented using aluminum to replace the chicken glasses

1968: The new “Tab End” wing band is invented. NB&T now employs 50 people.

1980s: National Band & Tag now has 3rd and 4th generation family members working together. NB&T continues to purchase surrounding land to expand the building.

1990s: NB&T celebrates 90 years of business in 1992.

 

Stainless Steel Eyelets For Zip Wing Bands

National Band & Tag is proud to present our newest upgrade for Zip 890 wing bands, Stainless Steel Eyelets (Style # 890 ESS)!  These new eyelets are more durable than the old aluminum eyelets because this material cannot be easily manipulated. Stainless steel is much harder than aluminum, so if someone tries to remove the eyelet, they won’t be able to without destroying the wing band. This makes the Zip wing band with Stainless Steel Eyelets a truly tamper-resistant wing band. These new eyelets are able to go on the Zip wing bands,  styles 890-2.75, 890-3 or 890-4.

890 ESS stainless steel eyelets on aluminum zip 890-3 wing bands for chickens

To seal the Stainless Steel Eyelets properly, you will need the new Heavy Duty Applicator (Style # 890S HD). This applicator makes sealing the bands easier because it is bigger and provides more leverage. The new applicator (shown below with red handles) is 8-1/4” long with a thicker head. The old applicator is 7-1/4” long with a thinner head (shown below with green handle).

How-To: Spot Weld a Stainless Steel Wing Band

The Stainless-Steel Wing Bands (Style 890-4SS) or Aluminum Wing Bands (Style 890-4AL) can easily be spot welded shut with a small spot welding machine. Below is a video showing how to spot weld your metal wing bands. Spot welding your wing bands shut helps to provide a tamper-resistant seal so that the band cannot be taken off and used again.

Why use leg and wing bands to identify your poultry?

For chickens, ducks, quail, pheasants, peafowl, turkeys, and more, the correct type of id band can make all the difference when it comes time to sell or breed your birds. Identification is helpful for multiple reasons including, but not limited to:

  • Keeping track of the number of birds you have
  • Helping lost or stolen birds are returned to the proper owner
  • Tracking pedigree
  • Tracing generations
  • Recording when birds were born and keeping track of the ages of your flock
  • Meeting requirements for shows/competitions
  • Tracking migration patterns
  • And more!

There are multiple types of identification such as wing bands and leg bands available to meet your needs, from color-coding, blank bands, custom stamped bands, numbered bands, stamped sequential numbering or even laser etched barcodes.

For example, you could use a different color every year to track age, barcodes to track pedigree, or sequential numbering to track the number of birds you have.

What type of poultry identification is best for you?

Wing Bands
Wing bands are a permanent type of identification with a high retention rate that will stay with the chick for life and grow with it. Wing bands will not bother the bird and may be covered with feathers when they are older, making it more difficult to read. Wing bands are usually put on chicks, anywhere from a day old to a few weeks, but can also be put on adult birds.

Learn more about: Which Wing Band is Best for You

Leg Bands
Leg bands are aluminum or plastic band that wrap around a bird’s leg and must be fitted to their leg size. Leg bands are more commonly used on fully grown birds, but when used on a young bird, the band must be constantly changed as the bird’s leg grows. Leg bands can be a temporary source of identification or a permanent one. Plastic leg bands will fall off easier than metal ones due to the bird pecking at it or excess exposure to weather. Leg bands are the best option for those who do not wish to pierce the skin with a wing band or toe punch.

leg band varieties

***Try a combination of leg bands and wing bands for guaranteed identification***

Peepers / Blinders
Plastic Peepers and Blinders are used to stop cannibalism amongst birds, such as chickens and pheasants, by hiding other birds from view. These are considered the modern version of chicken glasses. Some people will only use Peepers on birds that cause problems, while others will use them on their whole flock as a preventive measure. Try using different colors to track different ages or flocks of birds.

blinders for chickens

Toe Punches
Toe Punches can be used to mark the webbing between the toes of baby chicks. This option works for those who don’t need colors or numbers to achieve their ID goals. Toe Punches create a small 2mm hole in the webbing, and there is a total of 16 different markings possible (one hole, two holes, left foot, right foot, etc.). Toe punches can also be used to pre-punch a hole in the wing webbing for wing bands.

toe punches

Other Poultry Identification Options:
Neck Tags – Plastic tags that can be hung by the neck of a baby chick.

Wing Badges – Large plastic badge that attaches to the wing and has large visible numbers.

Bird Bits – Plated steel or plastic bits that are placed in the bird’s nostrils to help stop pecking. Special/deep feeders are needed so the birds may continue to eat.

NEW 898-3 Fusion 2D Barcoded Wing Bands

tab end wingbands barcoded

At National Band & Tag, our poultry business started with backyard birds in the early 1900s. When neighbors squabbled about who’s birds were who’s, Joseph Haas found a solution in creating different colored poultry leg bands and wing bands. This has evolved a great deal over the years, from adding numbering, to custom stamping of names and farms, to our current offerings that include barcodes, fusion ink, and tamper-resistant seals. Keep reading for more detail on the exciting options we offer in poultry bands today!

Tab End 898-3: A pre-formed band that’s fast and secure. This wing band can be applied completely by hand, no applicator required! Approximate dimension when closed 3/16” height x 5/8” length.

Fusion: “Fusion Marked” characters utilize permanent ink for an easy to read, black, contrasting barcode and number. The fusion process on the Tab End and Zip have a 500 band minimum. Tags are available in White, Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Purple, Pink, Brown, and Light Gray.

2D Data Matrix Barcode: The data matrix is superior to the linear barcode for multiple reasons:

  • It can contain up to 2,335 alphanumeric characters, while a linear barcode can contain up to 5 or 6 alphanumeric characters.
  • Data matrixes are great for encoding large amounts of information on a small amount of space, such as a wing band.
  • It is the most secure barcode there is, data cannot be changed or altered once the barcode is created.
  • A 2D data matrix can be scanned with a smart phone or 2D scanner.

Complete number sequences – No duplicate numbers – No missing numbers – Guaranteed!
