About This Collar:
The Fringy Cone Bird Collar is our thickest, most protective Elizabethan-style collar. We worked with avian veterinarians to design a sturdy bird collar for mostly bald, severe feather plucking birds and bird self mutilation.
These bird collars support healing of:
Style: Our Fringy Cone Bird Collar features a semi-stiff base and thick layers of soft fleece around the neck to support zealous chewers toward healing.
The Fringy Cone Bird Collar is soft and comfortable to wear, unlike traditional plastic collars. Best of all, it doesn’t interfere with your bird's peripheral vision or the ability to eat and drink.
Trim To Fit: This collar is designed so you can cut down both the neck hole and the perimeter to fit your bird.
Washing: The Velcro Closure bird collar is easy to clean and maintain. Just wash in mild soapy water and lay flat to dry.
Putting On: Designed as a hook and loop collar, this one is a bit easier to put on and easy for a persistent bird to remove. Use sticky moleskin strips to secure the hook-and-loop closure.
Keeping The Collar On: Because plucking can turn into a nasty habit, some birds learn to unhook the hook-and-loop collar. One strategy is to spray the collar with a bitter-tasting spray to deter your bird. Another strategy is to use moleskin on the underside to hold the two sides together.
Tips, tricks & advice from the pros. that include how to adjust the fit for your particular bird, click here.
Please be advised: Birds that habitually pluck or mutilate themselves and those that have had this habit for a long time are more prone to chewing the collar or trying to remove it.
Plan to support acceptance with these strategies:
1. Spray the bird collar with a bird-safe bitter spray like Bitter Apple Or King's No Chew.
2. After placing the collar on the bird, stabilize the hook and loop closure by placing a strip of moleskin or duct tape on the underside where the two sides overlap.
UnRuffledRx Soft Bird Collars are the first line of defense for stopping feather plucking because they interrupt the plucking cycle. The more severe your bird’s plucking, the thicker and stiffer the collar it will need. Most birds need time to adjust to a bird collar.

On the order page, look for the orange colored SIZE GUIDE right by the product price.
Most collars come in 5-7 sizes based on the birds weight in grams. If you don't have a gram scale, you can purchase one online. Amazon tends to be the most affordable place. You don't need a specialized bird scale, it just has to weigh in grams.
