Banding Parrotlet Babies & Placing Them Back With the Parents

I have yet to band my babies but am going to start. If I band at 10 days....can they go back with the Parents?

I never band parrotlet chicks and stick them back with the parents. Many times they will attempt to ‘remove’ the band and end up injuring, maiming or even killing the chick. If you band the chicks, in my opinion, they need to be hand-fed and not placed back with the parents.
