Hello and welcome to the forum! Nice to see somebody else from the UK

I've had a few birds with plucking issues that I've managed to fix. I'm sure we could offer some advice and help to see if you can try to curb her habits. Feel free to ask any questions!

We'd love to see photos

I hope you can design another collar for her that will prevent her from further plucking she looks like an intelligent bird with a ton of personality. Thanks for posting a pic.
