Can hold up to the pressure that a spoiled cockatoo antics
Lasted 2 days on my severe macaw.
My second purchase. I tried a different one from birdsupply, a soft one, before this, and while both are well made, none lasted longer than 2-3 days. My parrot is severe macaw.
Years ago, my cockatoo started self-mutilating. Before knowing about BirdSupplies, my bird had to wear hard plastic "cones"...Neither I nor my bird was happy about this! My vet told us about BirdSupplies and suggested trying a soft collar. I tried a couple different types of collars that BirdSupplies offered, before settling on the Fringy Cone Bird Collar that works great!
Since my cockatoo tries to bite his feet and his wings, I suggest going with one size larger than the size chart recommends (the size chart recommends a medium; however, I purchase a large). Cockatoos are very smart and teach themselves sneaky ways to get to the areas they want to mutilate; but the larger size collar helps prevent this. The only problem with the larger size is that the neck hole is too large for my bird. My suggestion to BirdSupplies is to make the neck hole smaller, but allow the customer to trim it to customize the hole size as needed.
Well made cone… however the small size is still too big for my cockatiel… he couldn’t even walk with it on… so I guess I’ll have to find something else to help his plucking. It would be helpful if you put examples of which birds fit which cones in the descriptions… if those descriptions exist, I was not able to locate them.
Thanks for the review, Kathryn, I wanted to point out that our cone collars can be trimmed at both the neck hole and at the perimeter to get a good fit.
