UnRuffledRx Fringy Cone Bird Collar, Velcro Closure

Size Guide

Fringy Bird Collar for Severe Pluckers

  • Overview

    • 8-10 layers of fringy fleece surround the neck to restrict access to vulnerable plucking areas
    • Semi-stiff base flanges out from the body making it perfect for birds with open wounds
    • NOW with DuraGrip® Hook & Loop Closure

    This bird collar protects sever feather plucking parrots in two ways.  First, the base has a semi-stiff insert sandwiched between two layers of thick fleece.  It's not too weighty, but stiff enough to make it hard to grasp with a foot and bend over. The stiff feature restricts access to tail, under the wings and other vulnerable areas.  On top is thick, fringy fleece surrounding the neck, softly restricting neck range of motion.  In other words, your bird will have to work hard to access its preferred plucking areas. 

    Developed for severe feather picking parrots and parrot self-mutilation, this Fringy Bird Collar provides the thickest, stiffest protection of all UnRuffledRx soft bird collars. 

    It's relatively lightweight, but please plan to help your bird develop the physical stamina needed to tolerate this protective bird collar. Monitor bird weight to ensure tolerance.

    Note: Colors may vary from those shown and may change seasonally.

  • More Info

    We recommend that you contact your Avian Vet for a full examination to determine the potential cause of your bird's feather plucking behavior. In addition, to protect your bird from plucking feathers use a soft bird collar.

    A bird collar alone will NOT resolve a plucking problem. By the time most caretakers make the choice to use a bird collar, the problem has likely turned into a habit.  You are encouraged to combine use of a bird collar with calming supplements, wellness strategies, improved parrot husbandry, resolution of medical problems and behavior modification.

So Far So Good!

My M2 is a rescue parrot who was a plucker since I got her 13 years ago. It was never an issue til she injured her leg with a toy chain and chewed her leg open. Got that healed and she started an injury to the skin on her shoulder. It's been a tough go because the hard plastic collars with permanent disks were too much weight on her and caused the injured area to swell from her bumping around. If I gave her a break from the vet apparatus she would pick at the scan and open the skin again. I purchased a basic soft collar but it wasn't enough. However the fringy soft collar seems to be working just fine because it hides the injured area in a way that is enabling the skin to heal. This was my last resort and it truly IS a lifesaver for us! She seems to tolerate it well. I use it with the basic collar.

Best yet.

We tried all the styles offered for my African gray. A determined, life-long pluck-er, she is able to get her wings over the unruffled styles and reach neck feathers with the slip on style. This FRINGY COLLAR is stiff enough on the bottom layer that she rarely gets her wing over it. The ruffle around the neck protects chest,vent and tail areas. She is getting used to the weight of it and the amount of feather regrowth is impressive.

best yet. getting feathers in areas that have not had feathers in years.

Keko is an African Gray, 35 years old and a life-long picker. After years of effort with the vet, I had given up. With the plastic collars the feathers grew back,but she sat like a toy bird. I could have a miserable bird with feathers or a happy naked bird. A couple years ago I found another brand of poncho which helped some. this fringy collar is helping more than anything else we've used. It's stiff enough to protect wing feathers and the ruffles keep her away from chest and tail feathers. She has no trouble eating or drinking and moves about to play with her toys easily. I do have to watch the velcro. It always moves to the front. She'll open it when her can. The first one held up a month before the velcro was showing wear. this second one looks like it may last 6-8 weeks. all the chewing is around the velcro-I have a few ideas to the to refurbish the chewed areas to get more wear.

Saved my baby... thankful ❤

I purchased the fringy collar for severe pluckers- but my Goffin Cockatoo was not plucking, but severely chewed her chest down to the bone. She was not afraid of this collar after just two attempts to wear it. I showed her the collar, let her hear the tear of the Velcro. She just had surgery to heal the chewed chest and is still wearing her collar. It has saved the stitches so far. Rosie, is very precious to me and I am so thankful for your product. As of this moment she has chewed the collar up quite a bit, she got to the Velcro! But it is serving it's main purpose- no chest chewing! I will recommend this collar to other bird family ❤ 🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊
