    About the Huggle Bird Collar

      • Gently hugs your bird's neck to limit the range of motion and hinder access to legs, vent, and other vulnerable areas
      • Velcro closure allows for an adjustable fit
      • Top-rated bird collar for hard to manage feather plucking birds

      The Huggle Soft Neck Bird Collar is our most popular bird E-collar ever. Developed for severe feather plucking and self-mutilation, the Huggle makes it difficult for your bird to bend its neck to chew on legs, vent, underwings, and chest.

      Plan to introduce feather plucking apparel slowly.  Your bird has to get used to the weight of the collar, having its feathers ruffled up from the collar, and most importantly, you need to use positive reinforcement to teach safer behaviors.

      Traditional plastic bubble bird collars are extremely harsh and make it hard for your bird to enjoy life. The Huggle bird collar is different.  Its thick girth restricts neck movement while providing soothing sensory pressure.  Your parrot can be a parrot in this bird collar.  It can eat, play, climb, and more.

      Soft, stretchy, breathable organic bamboo fabric covers the thick foam insert. Think of it like a memory foam pillow that naturally conforms to your bird's neck. Hook and loop allow for minor adjustments to accommodate a range of neck girths and crop expansion.

    1. 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.

      The length measurement is the inside diameter of the foam that hugs the neck.  You can adjust the tightness of this measurement. The height from the base of the neck to the jaw. 

      Please Note: These are suggested sizes for parrots that are of average size for their species.  We strongly recommend that you measure your bird prior to purchase. See our exchange policy here:
