    This tough bird e-collar protects the skin once it has been compromised, such as in self-mutilation or surgery/wound recovery.

    These bird collars allow the wounds to heal but don't eliminate the underlying cause(s). We urge you to work with your avian vet to uncover the underlying causes of self-mutilation or feather plucking.

    PLEASE NOTE: We suggest sizes, but please be aware that individual birds may vary considerably in size and you will need to adjust accordingly. Please measure your parrot's neck for complete accuracy. Open packaging is NOT accepted for return.

    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.

This collar saved me and my bird

I had a good experience with this collar overall. Not to mention, I needed this because my indian ring had injured his foot and had taken off the dry scab like a child and ended losing a lot of blood in the process. Birdsupplies was very helpful in overnighting this collar to me. When I placed on him, he hated it. When his foot got worse cause he would quit picking and chewing off the scab plus his own flesh, I took this collar with me to the ER. In short, even the vet doctor said he liked this collar than the animal hospital's because of the clips. Grabbed kiwi and sent me away for the day. Picked him up at the end of the day and no more screaming, he got accustomed to it. Heads up and tip: buy 2 to start out with. Even the vet said that he would most likely chew at it. The pics provided is the hem of a t-shirt I had sewn on myself to lengthen the inner part of the collar. I had sewn it on after he bit off the black foam but had already ordered another collar and did the same. Overall, I'm happy with it. Being that I found a way to pro-long the life of the inner collar, it's great for me. (Old brown t-shirt hem and new green one after I cleaned collar and re-did sewing.)

The only one my bird keeps on

This cone is the only one that my Goffin keeps on. She knows hot to take all of the other ones off. She has broken some of it but as long as it stays on I am ok with it. I got the size 406xs and it fits fine. I have only two of the snaps snapped so if I needed to I could snap the third.

Great product

I have tried several fleece collars but my parrot hated them. She wears this at night while her feathers regrow.

So far...

...the proper size Saf-T Shield fits closely enough that my bird can't get her beak into the neck opening to chew it off. Keeping my fingers crossed.
