Fringy Bird Collars for Severe Feather Picking Parrots

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.

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 ❤ 🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊

Fringy collar

Cherie (G2) wears her collar all the time in combination with a plastic collar underneath the fringes which nicely help also to hide the plastic nut and bolt which closes it (she is very adept at opening closures -- velcro, snaps, nuts and bolts, etc). Very mechanically inclined. She needs to wear it all the time as she relentlessly rips out feathers (it's a habit). This morning she had a bath and afterwards she was too fast for me and rip, there went a chest feather…

I have an umbrella cockatoo that is a feather picker and with this collar she has stopped and her feathers are coming back in. Thanks

Stays on the longest!

Alex my African Grey takes great pride in how fast she can escape her collars. This one lasted through our vacation! It was off the next morning. We put a light no Velcro collar over the top and it lasts for weeks.

Heidi, Thanks so much for your business and this review that helps others to 'think outside of the box' when it comes to helping our Houdini parrots!

Great Collars!!!

The collars are fantastic the size was perfect for my Moluccan he used to really struggle with the plastic collar and is able to maneuver around the cage and get to the food and water bowls with ease.

So glad that your M2 is doing better. I've got an M2 as well. He's family!
