    The Poncho Bird is one of our lightest soft bird collars at just 2 layers thick.  It's designed for mild to moderate feather plucking birds. That is birds that have destroyed feathers on 20% or less of their body.  

    These bird collars support the healing of these areas:

    • Neck
    • Chest
    • Back
    • Light shoulder plucking

    Our Poncho Bird Collar features a one-layer thick base. The top is a matching patterned design, cut into slices to promote preening. After all, wouldn't you rather your bird chews the top layer of a bird collar rather than itself? The Poncho slips over the head with a stretchy turtle neck.

    The Poncho 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. 

    Putting The Collar On:

    This bird collar has a stretchy knit neck similar to the cuff of a sweatshirt. Stretch the neck out and slip the collar over your bird's head.

    Please know that feather plucking birds, especially those that have been plucking for few years may chew up or outwit a bird collar. Plan to support acceptance with patient training and a bitter-tasting spray.

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.
