The PartyFowl *Made-to-Order* Waterfowl Neoprene Shoe

This Listing is for ONE Open-Toe Style Shoe. Please see the listing to make sure this is the style and size your will need. This Listing is for ONE shoe, not a pair. This shoe is intended for fully fledged or nearly full grown fowl only.

THESE SHOES ARE UNIVERSALLY SIZED, there is no left shoe or right shoe. That means each shoe can fit on either foot, despite the velcro straps always being on the same side. The vast majority of fowl do NOT need right or left shoes like people do. If you feel your fowl needs two differently shaped shoes, please order the "Completely Custom Poultry Shoe" from my shop- as I will need measurements/ tracings/drawings of the feet.

Please read this listing in it's entirety before making any purchases. We are NOT responsible for those who do not read this listing thoroughly. Please be informed that these items are HAND-MADE and are not created until ordered. If you are unable to wait patiently for your item to be created, or do not want to read this entire listing, please do not order.

See the Size Chart above to determine and double check what size will work best for your pet. We can NOT accept any returns for any reason on handmade items due to Health and Sanitation Issues, as well as the customization. If you are unable to determine size by breed or weight on the chart, please see the Measurement Chart in the 5th photo. Please send us a message with a description, photos, and measurements of your pet.

-All items are handmade and take time to create. We try our best to complete every item as quickly as possible while maintaining our high quality of production. We ship out as soon as the entire order is finished. The pet duck world is expanding quickly (Great news!) and we are trying our best to help as many as possible :)
-We are just two people, Nettie and Alex. Nettie hand makes every item in this store! Alex helps cut out materials, answers messages, and packs/ships the orders. We both have full time careers (Nettie is a teacher and Alex is a Financial Analyst), so we greatly appreciate patience :)
-We get many many messages (more than you'd think!) and it can take a couple days for a reply. Please ONLY message us through Etsy, not our Gmail address. We get hundreds of notifications through our gmail account and will not see/reply to you.
-To get orders out as quickly, we do NOT reply to messages asking for an update while an order is being created, UNLESS the order is overdue. It might seem like a quick 10 minute reply, but if many ask for updates, it can cut severely into our limited available time to make items.

This listing is for an OPEN-TOE shoe.

Benefits of an Open-Toe Shoe:
This style of shoe has three open holes in the front for each toenail of ducks and geese, as well as a hole in the ankle cuff for the back toe nail. It allows waterfowl the use of their toenails for roosting, scratching, climbing, etc (this design is great for Muscovy ducks). It also provides extra cushion or to prevent injury to susceptible feet. This design also allows for swimming. If your pet has infections or wounds, please consider the closed-toe design.

Benefits of a Closed-Toe Shoe:
This style of shoe completely covers the front three toenails and has a an opening for the back toenail in the ankle cuff. The foot is able to move around inside the shoe (provides room for bandaging) and can seem a little big, especially on smaller ducks. This design is best for fowl with injuries/infections that need extra protection. It is recommended to NOT allow your fowl to swim/bathe with this design. You may need to trim longer toenails on some waterfowl to fit in the shoe properly.


Please note that while I try to get the colors as true as possible, your monitor setting may influence the exact color. If you have a question about a color or would like a sample, please feel free to ask! Colors in stock change frequently, can have variations due to dye lots, and sometimes a color will run out before a listing can be updated. If a color you request is unavailable I will contact you about a second color choice.


Important Info about Shoes:
- Shoes are NOT a replacement for proper veterinarian care and are not guaranteed to prevent or heal any illness or Injury.
- Inform your vet to your use of medical items for your pet. Discontinue use if your vet recommends it.
- Closed toe shoes must be removed for bathing! Open toe shoes should be removed for a short period each day to allow your fowl to preen. Waterfowl should bathe/preen for at least 1 hour a day.
- If using a closed toe shoe, your fowl should be sequestered away from swimming or bathing water sources to prevent the holding of moisture against the foot.
- Wash shoes when they become soiled, about once a day. It works great to wash the shoe while your pet bathes/preens.
- Shoes can be worn both inside and outside of the home or coop.
- Fowl with injuries such as Bumblefoot can wear this shoe even after recovery. The extra cushioning of the shoe can help prevent infection by padded tender feet.
- Fowl should have access to a predator safe structure, as the extra weight from the shoe may limit the ability to escape from predators.
- It is normal for fowl wearing a shoe for the first time to ecperience slight balance problems while adjusting to the shoe. Fowl may sit more often as well.
-If your fowl pecks or removes the shoe, medical cloth tape may be placed around the top of the ankle cuff and leg to secure it into place.

Putting on a Shoe:
1. Sit down on a chair, open all velcro straps of the shoe, and place the shoe on a table or surface within easy reach.
2. Place your fowl on your lap. Tuck your fowl's head under one arm while using the other hand to gently pull the desired leg out from under the bird. This will cause the fowl to sit. (NOTE: Only pull your bird's leg from the joint to prevent injury).
3. Gently fold your fowl's foot (like and accordion) and slip it inside of the shoe.
4. Once the toes are positioned correctly (you have open toe shoes, you will need to place each toe in each opening), close the foot strap.
5. Carefully position the back toe in the opening on the back of the ankle cuff.
6. Allow your fowl to stand, then close the ankle cuff snug around the ankle.


Cleaning Instructions:
It is recommended to wash this PartyFowl Shoe by hand in a sink with mild detergent (like hand soap), and allow to air dry. They can be placed in the wash with all velcro straps closed with other less linty fabrics (like denim, avoid placing with towels or sweaters), and can be dried in the dryer though machine washing/drying can wear the shoe out quicker.
