My cockatiel has a band on his right leg. I know this is for information on my bird. Do I need to have it removed, or does he keep this for all of his life?

The band can stay on as long as it doesn't bother him and he doesn't get it caught on things. I have never had to remove a band from any of my birds. HTH

LuvMyTiels said it perfectly. If it's a closed band, it has been on since your cockatiel was a baby and s/he is probably very used to it.

I don't think it needs to be removed, unless it was annoying him severely or it was to get caught. I too have never had to have a band removed and 8 of my birds have leg bands.
