Application April 9, 1937, Serial No. 135,995 1 Claim. (Cl. 119-156) My invention relates to improvements in bands the same and is provided with a plurality of aper for use on fowl, pigeons or other species of birds. tures Ill therein for the same purpose as aper The primary object of my invention is to pro vide a practical inexpensive device of this char portion 2, opposite the juncture 6, said portion 5 acter adapted to be attached to fowl or birds on different parts of the body, for instance, a leg or the neck, to serve in the dual capacity of an identifying medium and an instrumentality for preventing and destroying the accumulation of 10 vermin such as lice or the like. To the accomplishment of the above, and sub ordinate objects presently appearing, a preferred embodiment of my invention has been illustrated in the accompanying drawing, set forth in detail 15 in the following description, and de?ned in the claim appended hereto. In said drawing:-— Figure 1 is a View in side elevation with the band closed as when in actual use. 20 Figure 2 is an edge view with the band spread out. Figure 3 is a view in transverse section taken on the line 3-3 of Figure 2 and drawn to an en larged scale. 25 Figure 4 is a View in side elevation with the band spread out and the container open. ture 9. At appropriate points on the central is provided with edge tabs II for folding over 5 the ?ap 5 to hold the same in closing position. The end straps 3 and 4 are designed to be bent around the legs, or other selected appropriate partsof the fowl or bird, and secured together as follows. The end of one strap in this instance, 3, 10 is notched, as at l2, in its opposite side edges to provide a pair of opposed tabs 13 on said opposite edges, respectively. A loop-like keeper I4 is provided on the strap 3, between the pair of tabs I3 and the portion! to receive the free end of the 15 strap 4. The keeper 14 may be struck-up from strap 3 if desired. The strap 4 is bent around the end of the strap 3 and inserted through said keeper [4. The tabs l3 are then crimped down over opposite edges of the strap 4 as shown in 20 Figure 1. If desired the extremity of the strap 4 may be secured, in any suitable manner to the strap 3 or to the keeper l4. However, in actual practice crimping of the tabs l3 over the edges of the strap 4 is suf?cient to hold said straps to- 25 gether. An appropriate part of the band may be Figure 5 is a view in longitudinal section taken stamped, or otherwise provided, with a serial on the line 5--5 of Figure 1 looking in the direc tion indicated by the arrows. 30 Referring to the drawing by numerals, in the illustrated embodiment thereof my invention comprises a band-like piece of any suitable ma number or other data identifying the fowl or terial which is light, strong and readily bent, for instance, aluminum, and includes a substantially 35 central circular portion 2, a pair of end straps 3 and 4 extending from diametrically opposite sides of said portion 2, and a substantially cir cular flap 5 extending fromthe edge of the por tion 2, intermediate the straps 3 and 4, to bend 40 thereon at its juncture 6 therewith whereby said flap 5 may be folded down upon the portion 2 for a purpose presently clear. The central por tion 2 comprises a preferably integral circular container 1 extending to one side thereof and 45 designed to contain a medicated lozenge, or other medium, represented at 8, adapted to generate fumes or gases such as will destroy lice or simi lar vermin, or act as a repellant to such vermin. An aperture 9 is provided in the bottom of the 50 container 1 for the escape of such fumes or gases. The aforementioned ?ap 5 is designed to fold down over the mouth of the container 1 to close bird to which it is attached. , The embodiment of the invention described 30 will, it is believed, be clear from the foregoing, but, it is to be understood that the invention may take other forms than that described and right is herein reserved to modi?cations of the described embodiment falling within. the scope of 35 the claim appended hereto. What I claim is: A device of the character described comprising a band of ?exible metal adapted to be bent into end to end overlapping relation and having 40 formed therein centrally thereof a container portion for receiving a medicated medium, a ?ap ' extending from said portion to be bent down over the container portion to close the same, and means on one end of said band for connecting 4,5 the other thereto in said relation comprising a pair of edge tabs adapted to be crimped overv the edges of the other end, said container por tion and ?ap being apertured, respectively, for the escape of fumes emanating from said medi- 50 cated medium.
