Question advice on plucking

Hi to all just asking a question my hahns macaw has started plucking her chest and under her wings .
I have seen different options the plastic e collar looks ok also i have seen knitted collars .
I have tried her with a handmade sock which she was Ok with but plucking more trying to get it off .
What is the best thing i have tried sprays drops also renewed all her toys and foraging ones she has the large cage She is 8 now but its when i go to work i cant leave a radio for her as she likes quite if i am not in the room with her .
Can anyone recommend the best collar thanks.

Hi and welcome to Talk Parrots, I'm sorry to hear your bird is plucking as this is a serious concern for you and the bird.

Unfortunately I haven't dealt with this problem before so I can't give you any helpful advice on which collar would be best for your bird. I hope someone else here can help and will post some news for you and your bird. Good luck.
