  • 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.

Citron Cockatoo

Excellent collar, very easy to slip on so no velcro she can rip threw and take off, lightweight and easier for her to move around with, she is a self mutilater and was given to me to help correct her behavior and make her feel safe again, with this collar and my Avian Vet we are on the right track. Thank you for making a great collar

first impressions

I ordered this collar in both the slip on and velcro styles. Both are well made. The slip on style helps a lot to protect the chest, but leaves room to pick feathers around the neck. The velcro style closes closer around the neck, but the weight of the velcro keeps it in the front where she focuses her chewing on it. Both styles are light enough for her to get her wings around and reach the upper feathers. Because of this, she now wears the ruffled version. These unruffeled versions are lighter, and probably work well with the moderate pluckers. For the more determined birds, the ruffled version offers more protection.

Fit: Just Right
Quality: Good
Smart bird

My Goffins is too smart. She figured how to rip off the Velcro ones. The slip on helped train her that the collars are ok. Now I can use the Velcro ones also depending on her needs.

The only thing that works

Our Moluccan Cockatoo has physically recovered from a tricky bacterial skin infection but has become a chronic plucker, and will rub at his chest until he has an open wound. Other than breaks for showers or when we can closely supervise him, he is probably in a collar for life. We have tried all sorts of collars, but the slip on version is the only thing that works. He knows all about velcro. These collars last about 6 weeks before they are so battered that we replace them. He can fly and climb without problems, and doesn't even object much when we put it back on him. Please note that we use this collar in conjunction with a stretchy gauze 'turtleneck'. The Slip-on collar goes over the gauze and prevents him from reaching his chest feathers.

Fit: Just Right

Certainly works

It does the job!

Don't get me wrong, my Hahn's HATES it, but a few days of slowly putting it on her more and more and she's accepted it as her fate. I take it off every day for about an hour just to give her time to preen, eat some food with her feet, and usually she manages to pluck just one feather.... but it's a process.
