I am returning collar will replace with the fleece one which I have bought 7 so far, great benefit for my Cockatoo. After I moved food dishes up higher, he was able to eat with it on.
I put the collar on and the cape at the same time but my macaw of course hated it and had a tough time standing. I took the cape off and just left the collar on but the next morning he had removed it. So afar I have not put it back on but it appears he is not pulling his feathers again..maybe the threat alone was enough. We will see. I do want to address the great customer service I received from this company. The box came in from the post office damaged and missing parts and immmeciately the owner showed her deep concern and made everything right with me. I love this customer service result and am still going to use this collar if he starts to pull his feathers again..i may just have to do it more slowly as is suggested.
