Why Your Bird Needs UnRuffledRx Bird Collar?
Consult your avian vet to determine why your bird is plucking. It could be due to medical or behavioral problems. Bird collars act as a barrier to keep your parrot from plucking. Regardless of whether the feather plucking is medical or a behavioral, a bird collar acts as a barrier to keep the bird from its feathers and keep it warm. Environment management, parrot husbandry and behavior modification are also factors that contribute to the problem.

Choosing an UnRuffledRx Bird Collar
Use the visual above to determine your birds plucking level. UnRuffledRx Bird Collars come in styles for mild through severe pluckers. A mild plucker may need a lightweight collar to serve as a diversion, while moderate to severe feather pluckers may need more restrictive collars. Thicker, stiffer collars restrict access to feathers and prevent further injury, but keep in mind that pluckers at this level will try harder to get the collar off. Behavior modification strategies will be necessary. Please train your bird to accept the collar to lengthen its usability.
Most birds don't like to wear apparel. But, the bird can become accustomed to the collar with training. Even sometimes with training, when first introduced to a collar, the bird may flip over and thrash about in effort to get the collar off. Other birds may get depressed as they are getting used to the collar. They may refuse to walk or eat. These displays may last a day or more. To greatly reduce trauma train your bird to wear a collar.
Please follow training instructions carefully. DO NOT be leave the bird unattended until you are confident, that it will not injure itself, and it is eating and drinking on its own.
