Modified size and structure for bigger birds such as the largest Congo African Greys and the largest Amazons.
Extra width side panels cover from inside the edges (zippers) of the front opening window. It is highly recommended for inquisititive birds like African Grey parrots who love to explore or those hard workers who need something to "work on" all the time. Often, they use their beak as the third point of anchor when moving in and out of the carrier and may find the zipper teeth "interesting". The panels can be unsnapped and replaced if necessary (cheaper than a new carrier!). The panels extend half an inch beyond the opening area and cover the left, right and bottom edges.
The perch is also lowered to 5".
Ventilation: In addition to a large mesh area on three sides (left, right and front), there is a "skylight" in the back. A dense mesh is used to keep mosquitoes from entering the carrier and avoid the bird from chewing through the mesh. Since 2008, a new stainless steel mesh with 54.8% of opening has been used, offering improved ventilation and better visibility for the owner to see the bird from outside.
Privacy: Except for the "skylight" area, Pak-o-Bird can be covered completely by lowering the side curtains and the front window flap.
Carrying Method: Pak-o-Bird can be carried in the front, on the back as well as on the shoulder. There are two sets of triangular rings for securing the straps - the middle two rings are for the backpack position and the outer rings are for the front carrier position. All the straps are adjustable.
Entertainment and Chewing Issue: Hang a bird toy or two to the D-rings on the support panels can keep the bird busy and away from chewing the carrier. To keep the toys from swinging widely and hitting the bird when the carrier is in motion , tie a string to the toy and thread the string to two small rings perpendicular to the large D-rings.
Food and Water: Each Pak-o-Bird comes with a dragon wood perch and two 5 oz. stainless steel cups for food and water. A large grommet is on one side for inserting the dispensing valve or tube of a water bottle strapped on to the outside.
Safety and Comfort Features: All zippers have an auto-lock device that stops the zipper from sliding without lifting the puller and prevents accidental escape. Two loops or sleeves in the back allow the carrier to be strapped to the seat belt in the back seat or around the front passenger seat by a separate strap. Two reflective strips on the front of the carrier make the carrier visible at night. All metal fasteners used in the interior are made with no lead and zinc. The back of the carrier as well as the front/back straps are padded for your comfort.
Cleaning and Storage: With the semi-rigid support panels and bars detached, the carrier can be unzipped and open up flat for a complete cleaning and easy storage. For regular cleaning, detach the small corner flaps and unzip the side to remove the floor panel. The carrier can be water-hosed inside out.
Maintenance: Various reinforcements have been added to the carrier's structure to prevent the plastic inserts from warping over time. To maintain the carrier's shape, when not in use, please unzip the entire carrier, detach the support panels and store it in a flat configuration. Creases created on the stainless steel mesh are not reversible, please handle the mesh with care.
