Good quality item. However, the recommended 8 inches for an african grey is far too small. Have now ordered the largest size,12 inches.
We needed this after my Cockatoo broke her wing. While she had a cast I got the heavier leather lined collar. It fit and worked great. Unfortunately the wing repair did not work and we had to amputate the wing. The leather lined collar was a bit too heavy so I needed something lighter fast to protect the site. The collar worked perfectly and my 2 is doing well. She seems to like wearing the collar now.
Unfortunately it was a waste of money. My macaw ripped off the Velcro within 10 minutes. Definitely not suitable for large macaws. I tried to email about returning but no response.
The collar was perfect, and came as quickly as I ordered it. Our little Quaker did not like this around her neck, but not due to quality. This collar was great, allowed Bonsai to chew it constantly but did not degrade. Would purchase again if needed.
The collar works pretty well in prevent my Caique from reaching most of the areas he plucks. I did have to add a fringy neck collar to cover the areas this collar allow him to chew. I was a little disappointed the collar was not like the 1st collar pictured on the website with the cascade of more abundant and narrower strips of fleece which the bird could strip mimicing preening. I solved this issue my cutting the sections into narrower stips. My Caique does in fact preen them like they are feathers and is much more accepting of the collar as a result
