    Double Nose, ROLN...what do these mean?

    Hello All! Longtime lurker, first time poster here with a question. I have come across terms like double nose, right out left nose (?) ROLN in these forums... what do these mean? They must be some type of breeding term?

    Double nose means the breeder marked both nostrils of the bird, clipped out a small portion of the nostril.

    ROLI means the breeder marked the birds webs inbetween the toes right out & left in, the outside web of the right foot and the inside web of the left foot.

    These markings are just a way for the breeder to identify which line or family the bird came from.

    So these are just a couple of examples of how a breeder would ID his birds. I get it now. Thank you!

    The correct meaning of ROLN, is marking on the right -Out Web,
    either by punch or Slit and on the Left Nose, by clipping the cover
    of the Left-Nose... Cheers...
