Does anyone have any tricks as to how you stop a male HH pulling off his flying jesses.

I have tried making the hole you pull them through really small but he just works at the leather and rips them off so they can't be used again.

It's not a big problem but i am gettig fed up replacing his flying jesses every 3 to 4 weeks.

Any points or hints appreciated.

I have thought about putting toys in his aviary to try and keep him occupied and he is kept free lofted - never tethered

By that do you mean when you thread it through the eyelet on his anklet. That's what he has on at the moment and thats what he is pulling off at the moment.

Tried some once made of Strimmer wire held on by wire crimp,worked well and he wont move them but went back to leather the following season.

no, jesse with hole in the end, instead of it being rolled to stop the anklet pulling through the eyelet. the pointy end of the jesse passed through eyelet then through the hole in the end of the jesse. its attached to the anklet and cant come off

tried some once using strimmer wire and a wire crimp, works well and he won't be able to remove them. Once he leaves them alone you can go back to leather.
