The Mid Size DIY Poncho is designed for average birds (size Large and Wide) that pluck the tops of their wings or it can be used with one of our other products for overall coverage. We call it the DIY Poncho because every bird is different and you now have the ability to create a solution based on your bird’s needs. The size Wide Poncho features a double layer for added protection and the size Large features a single layer (less weight). The elastic neck cording with bead allows you to easily cinch the neck to prevent your bird from getting underneath. Once you adjust the neck, just tuck the elastic under the cowl neck or flip it to the underside of the Poncho.
If you order the optional DIY Kit, we will add 2 or 3 sets of grommets to your Poncho and include a bag of recycled fabric strips, beads and cording. This will allow you to custom design the ultimate birdie distraction! Use the grommets to tie on strings, fabric, etc. (whatever you have around the house that your bird likes) – you can tailor the Poncho to what your bird enjoys the most and keep him or her busy. You can even cut the top layer of fleece to create fringe – you can also trim it shorter or leave it long. Think of the Poncho as the foundation for customizing the perfect plucking solution for your bird.
