All racing pigeons are ringed on one leg with life rings, each carrying an individual number which identifies the specific pigeon. The RPRA supplies GB rings to its members.
Should you find a stray racing pigeon you can enter the ring number in our Stray Reporting Wizard and receive the owner’s contact details. Alternatively, if you open the bird’s wing, you may find – stamped on one or more feathers – the name and address and/or telephone number of the owner.
