Bird Collars for Neck, Feet, Legs & Vent Plucking
If you have a parrot chewing feet or neck areas, you know that protecting these areas is tough. it will be important to cover the neck and restrict neck movement. Veterinary grade bubble collars are for the most severe of neck and feet chewers. We offer ta few styles of Neck Protector Bird Collars for parrots that chew their feet and necks.
You'll find Parrot Poncho's that cover the neck area with both a knit cuff or thicker fleece cowl neck that can be cinched to fit with a veg-tan leather tie.
We also have Neck Tube Collars. These are fleece wrapped leather strips with a hook and loop closure. They are available in soft or stiff leather. The stiffer the material, the more it restricts neck movement making it difficult for your bird to get at it's feathers.
Parrot Chewing Feet & Leg Protectors
Parrots that bite their feet can be difficult to manage since keeping a bird from it's feet requires movement and access to feet to be restricted. This level of restrictiveness may affect play, ordinary scratching, and eating. Bird collar specs that increase "restrictiveness" are either stiff or thick.

- Occasional seasonal hormone surges
- Dry skin
- Fungal or bacterial infection
- Allergies or exposure to chemicals on surfaces that the bird may perch on
- Wound that got infected
Finding the right bird collar for either of these problems may require some experimentation and innovation.
