  • PRODUCT DETAILS

    Notable tip: Fabric colors may change seasonally or due to supply chain issues. 

    Bird collars can be your feathered friend’s best friend. Consider the Parrot Poncho, which has been designed by veterinarians to protect mild to moderate feather plucking birds. With this collar, you’ll get the best of both worlds — protection and gentle restraint.

    These bird collars support healing of:

    • The top & underside of the wings
    • Neck
    • Chest & back

    The Parrot Poncho is made with two layers of lightweight fleece to protect birds from mild plucking. It is also useful for weakened or underweight birds that can't tolerate heavier bird collars. And, it is perfect for balding birds who may have trouble with body temperature regulation.

    Our professional seamstresses use industrial strength sewing machines to hand make each collar, right here in the USA. At BirdSupplies.com, we have 25 years of experience working to improve bird's lives. Each collar is checked for accuracy and safety before it is ever shipped.

  • MATERIALS

  • PUTTING THE COLLAR ON

    If you can't handle your bird, then you should have your vet help you.

    1. Sit on the floor with your knees in front of you. 

    2. Place your bird in between your legs with the beak pointing away from you.

    3. Hold the head stabilizing the jaw to prevent a bite.

    4. Stick your hand with fingers pointing toward the fleece and stretch out the neck.

    5. With the neck stretched out, slide your hand over your birds head and quickly pull the collar over the head. 

    Always observe your bird for a few days to make sure that it can get around and go about its daily activities like walking, eating, and playing.

    Every bird reacts differently. Some birds throw a fit while others act like they are frozen. 

    Either way, it is up to you to lavishly reward and reinforce "normal" behavior and ignore the fits. If your
    bird acts frozen, as if it can't move or eat, gently show it that it can walk, eat, and play. 

    Be persistent!
     

    Given it plenty of treats and favorite items to reinforce leaving the collar alone and going about daily activities. 

    If the Parrot Poncho gets worn out, you should cut it off rather than ruffle the feathers by trying to pull it back over the head,

  • PRODUCT SUPPORT

    Trim To FitIf the collar is too long trim it back at the bottom and add a few stitches at the seam where you cut it.

    Please be advised: Birds that habitually pluck or mutilate themselves and those that have had this habit for a long time need more training and time to adapt to a bird collar. While most people experience success with our bird collars we do not guarantee that a bird will adapt to a bird collar, that they'll like it, or that they can't remove the collar. 

    Washing: Wash in mild soapy water and lay flat to dry.

    Keeping The Collar On: One strategy to keep your bird from chewing on a collar is to spray the collar with a bitter-tasting spray to deter your bird. Another strategy is to use moleskin on the underside to hold the two sides together.

    Plan to support acceptance with these strategies:

    1. Spray the bird collar with a bird-safe bitter spray like Bitter Apple Or Bitter Yuk.

    2. After placing the collar on the bird, stabilize the hook and loop closure by placing a strip of moleskin or duct tape on the underside where the two sides overlap.

HOW Bird Collars Help

UnRuffledRx Soft Bird Collars are the first line of defense for stopping feather plucking because they interrupt the plucking cycle. The more severe your bird’s plucking, the thicker and stiffer the collar it will need. Most birds need time to adjust to a bird collar.

Bird collars are part of a range of wellness products that support feather pluckers. They work while you work on improving your pet's diet, improve parrot husbandry, and start using behavior modification.

How do I collar train my bird?

If your bird is new to wearing a collar you'll have to train it to both accept the collar and not chew up the collar. Clicker training is the solution of choice. Watch my YouTube Video here: https://youtu.be/ubm2BCNH5LE

How do I choose the best collar style for my bird?
What size do I need?

On the order page, look for the orange colored SIZE GUIDE right by the product price.

Most collars come in 5-7 sizes based on the birds weight in grams. If you don't have a gram scale, you can purchase one online. Amazon tends to be the most affordable place. You don't need a specialized bird scale, it just has to weigh in grams.

Your avian vet should have a weight on file, too.
