My female Eclectus picked all of her neck feathers out and a few thin patchy areas under her wings trying to nest. With the advice from Diane at Bird Supplies, we ordered the large knit cuff poncho. It fits terrific. I did have to trim the poncho to keep her from stepping on it. It took a couple days for her to get used to wearing it, but she can now maneuver herself around the cage. I received a grey poncho with white polka dots and I love it. It looks cute on my red bird. I tell her it's her Christmas Dress. She has chewed at the fleece poncho and the knit cuff, but she hasn't caused any damage to either areas. Very nice quality. The vet was happy with it too; she was going to make a stiff neck collar for her, but when she saw the poncho, she chose the poncho. She's a little mad at me, but she'll come around. Dude note, she received a small dose of Lupron to help decrease the desire to nest. So, I think the two together will provide great results. Thank you for all of the help in choosing the right product and the correct fit. Merry Christmas!
really cute and well made, I followed in enclosed instructions was very patient. My bird hated this thing even tho I never put it on her. I guess I'm out more money buying things I think might help.
Overall, the shipment arrived as specified , the poncho was darn cute, but too bad my little gal didn't want anything to do with it. Going back to the aloe vera spray.
I loved the poncho, colores, texture and quality was great! I put it on with no problems and Angelo got a little sad and quite most of the day. One obeservation and objection i have is you cannot remove it as easily:( i wish it came with some kind of velcro for on and off process, in case i want to dust it off or wash. Other than that very nice product! Will attempt to put it on again
My Alex will nibble on herself until her skin weeps. She has plucked the left side of her chest and under her wing. The poncho is just long enough to cover a little more than the regular collars but she does spin the poncho so the longer side is in front.
