8 strand square braid mews jesses, hand braided to order by myself. You pick the size and colour, and I’ll braid it for you, any questions just ask. Micro Size is extra small and lightweight for the tiniest birds so is ideal for American Kestrels, Little Owls, Pygmy Falcons etc. Micro jesses are approx. 4 inches long (or smaller for very tiny birds) Small Size is a bit thicker than micro and is ideal for Barn owls, Sparrowhawks and small falcons such as Aplomados. Small jesses are approx. 5 inches long Medium and Large are the same thickness as each other, with the medium jesses being approx. 6 inches long and the large being 7 or 8 inches long. They are ideal for medium and large falcons, hawks, buzzards etc. Medium is better suited for falcons tethered to blocks, particularly if used alongside a jess extender, Large is better suited to very large falcons with large block tops, or hawks who are tethered to bow or ring perches rather than blocks. I also make Extra Large and Eagle sized jesses but those can be found under a separate listing. My braided equipment is made from a combination of superstrong black dacron and marginally less strong (but still pretty damn strong) more colourful dacrons.
