  • 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 the use of a bird collar with calming supplements, wellness strategies, improved parrot husbandry, resolution of medical problems and behavior modification.

Poncho with knit cuff

The knit cuff stops Peaches from plucking his neck. The length stops him from reaching back to pluck his shoulders and back. I did have to cut some off the end as it was a little long for him.

Fit: Just Right
Quality: Good
Great Item

My Quaker had beak surgery and recovery required a collar. She tolerated this one so much better than the plastic one. She could stretch her wings, walk better and was less clumsy in it. All the while doing what its supposed to do. I'm ordering a second one.

Fit: Just Right
Quality: Good
Plucking Blue throat Macaw

I have been using these for years. They are very good but, sometimes we forget how smart our birds are. Mine can take a Velcro collar off in under 10 seconds! The new stretchy poncho was the answer to that. For now. Just wish I could stop her from this habbit.

Fit: Too Large
Quality: Great
Works great for stubborn parrot

Got this because my eclectus was self mutilating. It was quite long the way it originally came and he kept tripping on it so I had to trim it down to about a quarter of the length before I felt safe with him wearing it unsupervised. I feel like it’s kind of expensive for what it is but his wound has healed after a week and a half of wearing it so in my opinion it’s worth the cost.

Fit: Just Right
Quality: Great

So far so good my bare eyed cockatoo is unable to reach his chest area and do anymore damage to himself, he's done being mad at me for putting it on him...
