Aylmeri Anklets were developed by Guy Aylmeri in the early 1900s. We have taken that original system and incorporated our own processes to make extraordinary Aylmeri Anklets. Prime Falconry produces Aylmeri Anklets for Falcons, Hawks, Eagles, and Owls.
We start with premium quality kangaroo and precision cut the exact size Aylmeri Anklet to fit your bird. Our anklets are precisely symmetrical, the edge cuts perfectly spaced and aligned giving them a high-end aesthetic appeal. Our anklets look as good as the function. With our anklets you will always have a uniform edge around the grommet to be sure the grommet never rubs on your birds leg. Once you see our precision cut Aylmeri Anklets you will appreciate the quality craftsmanship.
Our Aylmeri Anklets are available in three colors: Natural (tan), Black or Brown. The anklets come rolled, greased with a jess grease, and grommets are included.
Our anklets are available in a wide range of precision sizes. We offer 4 widths (A – 1/2”, B – 5/8”, C – 3/4”, D – 1”) and 17 lengths in 1/8” (.125”) increments for an exact fit to your birds leg. See the table below for measurements to fit your bird. Check out our video tutorial on how to measure your birds leg to find the perfect size anklet. Please remember that we recommend going up one or two sizes from your measurement to insure the anklet can rotate freely.
If you need any assistance in ordering please contact us. We are happy to help you get the perfect size and fit.
