A toy for pluckers
posted 7 years ago
This is one of those must have toys for plucking birds and it is interesting that other birds in my house leave it alone, but the couple that were pluckers would preen it consistently.
It is inexpensive so once it is dirty I throw it away. Besides, the heavy overpreeners can literally break the strands off of it which is better than pulling their feathers out.
We adopted an old old cherry head conure that only had feathers on his head and part of his wings and we used many types of "pluckers" toys like this. It reduced the amount of plucking considerably although never really stopped it in total. He eventually died for cancer (the second bird we lost to cancer but both at fairly old ages).
But I digress. This is a great product. It may not look like much to some, but if you have a plucker, first, after a full vet check up to rule out thyroid issues (yes thryoid problems can make them pluck and there is a very quick fix for that) or other health issues, a toy like this can do wonders BEFORE they make plucking a lifelong habit.
Pros: Great for pluckers, inexpensive,
Cons: Throw away when dirty
