Our patented anti-bacterial Birdy Bootie protective shoe is designed to provide superior coverage and cushioning for birds with injured feet or bumblefoot (a staph infection on the foot pad or toe.)
Our Birdy Bootie is made of high quality materials and with a superior design.
Our booties are made of durable Neoprene, the same material used for wet suits, to protect wounds from dirt and moisture while providing extra cushioning for the injured foot. The underside of the booty is made of textured, non-slip neoprene while the top and inside are made of silky smooth nylon-covered neoprene. The booties fasten around the foot and ankle with super-strong velcro.
The seams on the inside of the opens toes provide both adequate space for toes and structure to enable circulation of air. Our roomy Birdy Bootie provides plenty of space for bandaging and padding of the wound with a cotton ball or two. Unlike "one-shape fits all" chicken shoes, our patent-pending Birdy Bootie is specifically designed for fit and comfort: the left bootie is shaped to be worn on the left foot and the right shoe is shaped to be worn on the right foot.
Please note: One of the ways birds stay cool is by dissipating heat from their feet (which is why you may find your chickens standing in puddles of water or in their water bowls on hot summer days). We do NOT recommend the use of the Birdy Bootie on birds housed outside in extreme heat.
