  • PRODUCT DETAILS

    Notable tip: Fabric colors may change seasonally or due to supply chain issues. 

    • Thick design prevents most birds from reaching feathers, injuries, or post-surgical wounds.
    • Provides a comfortable alternative to a cone and allows normal eating, drinking, playing, and climbing.
    • Stabilizes the neck to prevent your bird from bending and reaching preferred plucking areas.
    • Peripheral vision remains intact.
    • Made right here in the USA 🇺🇸

    Bird collars can be a great way to interrupt the feather plucking habit while you work on long-term solutions. Consider the Huggle Neck Collar because it has been designed by veterinarians to protect bald, feather plucking birds as well as those who suffer from minor self-mutilation. With this feather plucking bird collar, you'll get the best of both worlds - protection and gentle restraint.

    The Huggle Neck Collar For Birds support healing of:

    • The top & underside of the wings
    • The vent area
    • Feet & legs
    • Chest & back
    • Surgery Recovery

    Our Huggle Neck Bird Collar features a thick, stiff base to gently restrain the neck. Yet, it is lightweight. It is surprisingly effective with 80% of birds. Why? Your bird can get around easily in a neck collar. But, the thickness reduces neck range of motion. If your bird can't bend its neck it can't harm itself!

    The Huggle Neck Bird Collar offers a soft and comfortable way to protect parrots from severe plucking and self-mutilation behavior. 

    Made right here in the USA 🇺🇸 our professional seamstresses use industrial strength sewing machines to hand make each collar. Each collar is checked for accuracy and safety before it is ever shipped.

    At BirdSupplies.com, we proudly have 25 years of experience working to improve bird's lives. And another thing about us - you'll get your order in just 2-5 days! Faster if you need it.

  • PUTTING THE COLLAR ON

    This may be a two person job. If you can't handle your bird, then you should have your vet help you.

    1. Examine the size of the neck hole to determine if you need to trim it to fit. Neck holes are intentionally made small because you can always trim one to fit if it is too small but if the neck hole is too big, the collar would not protect your bird.

    2. Sit on the floor with your knees in front of you. 

    3. Place your bird in between your legs with the beak pointing away from you.

    4. One person may need to hold the head stabilizing the jaw to prevent a bite.

    5. Now, wrap the velcro attachment around, making sure that both velcro panels are firmly attached

    6. If your bird is a known chewer, which most mutilators are, use Moleskin to secure the velcro closures. 

    ALWAYS observe your bird for a few days to make sure that it can get around and go about its daily activities like walking, eating, and playing.

    Every bird reacts differently. Some birds throw a fit while others act like they are frozen. 

    Either way, it is up to you to lavishly reward and reinforce "normal" parrot behavior and ignore the "fits." If your bird acts frozen, as if it can't move or eat, gently show it that it can walk, eat, and play in a bird collar.

    Be persistent! Give your pet plenty of treats and favorite toys to when it is leaving the collar alone. Also, reward normal parrot daily activities like

    ✅ Playing
    ✅ Exploring
    ✅ Exercising

  • PRODUCT SUPPORT

    Please be advised: Birds that habitually pluck or mutilate themselves and those that have had this habit for a long time need more training and time to adapt to a bird collar.

    While 80% people experience success with our bird collars we do not guarantee that a bird will adapt to a bird collar, that they'll like it, or that they can't remove the collar. 

    Washing: The Huggle Neck Bird Collar is easy to clean and maintain. Just wash in mild soapy water and lay flat to dry thoroughly.

    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.

    Plan to support acceptance with these strategies:

    1. Spray the bird collar with a bird-safe bitter spray like Bitter Apple Or Bitter Yuk.

    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. 

    3. Use the above described reinforcement strategies.

HOW Bird Collars Help

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.

Bird collars are part of a range of wellness products that support feather pluckers. They work while you work on improving your pet's diet, improve parrot husbandry, and start using behavior modification.

How do I collar train my bird?

If your bird is new to wearing a collar you'll have to train it to both accept the collar and not chew up the collar. Clicker training is the solution of choice. Watch my YouTube Video here: https://youtu.be/ubm2BCNH5LE

How do I choose the best collar style for my bird?
What size do I need?

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.

Your avian vet should have a weight on file, too.
