    Hi... I just took the band off of my Quaker when I got him. I have
    alot of experience with birds and figured that he's my bird and I
    wanted it off. I clip his wings myself so he's not going anywhere.
    You can tell how old he is by his behavior, size etc. among other
    things. Later.. Connie
