    Re: your experiance with aviator harness

    Because of how much Mary Jo loved her aviator, and after seeing Elvis at the May meeting, I ordered one up for Cosmo. That was back in early May. I am ashamed to say, that I haven't even watched the video yet, much less tried to put it on Cosmo yet. LOL

    I just leave it out for her to play with, but she doesn't have much interest in it.

    I am glad this thread got brought up though. I was recently thinking that her flight feathers were starting to grow in, so I'll need to figure the Aviator out sooner, rather than later.

    I will watch the DVD, hopefully by this weekend, and attempt to put it on her. I'll let everybody know how it goes...
    Mary, Cosmo, Kaylaur, Perry & Tyler, and Spaz (temporary foster). And we can't forget the furry kids Pepper & Chewy!

    With Molly, Goffin's cockatoo, Sal was able to put it right on her when we first got it. Not that she likes putting it on but she does know that as soon as it is on she gets to go bye bye. She does not fight it being put on or being taken off.

    Tommy, cockatiel, was a whole different story. I am able to do all the things in the video with him with no problem at all. He just puts up a fight with putting it on, but once on and we go out, he is fine. Taking it off is another story also, he fights me.

    Now as for Emma, African Grey Congo, she is still scared of the thing. Emma is not two years old yet, so we have plenty of time to work with her.

    The problem we have here in Ohio is the weather. You can not take the birds out for months with the harness. Then you have to start over again in the spring. I like to have everything ready, so when the harness is on, they get reward of going bye bye with us right away, not finding keys, shoes, cell phone, anything like that. Harness on, out we go.

    We do not put our hands over face either. Just slip their heads into the space, that is the easy part.

    I find it very important to keep a loop in the buckle when putting on, this makes it much better.

    I can't wait to try out Tyraels aviator. I bet he will like it more than the flight suit. Soze's suit was alright, but she HATED the thing and would never ever calm down once she was in it...at least not for like 30 mins.

    Hmm... I ordered a flight suit for Jinxy. I wish the aviators came in his size, they look less constraining, but we'll see how it goes.

    This is an interesting topic Makes me sad that they don't make aviators small enough for lovies though *has fingers crossed that they'll make one eventually*
    Sarah - let me know how the flight suit works! I want one for Squeakers but was afraid on how it'd turn out.... I can imagine all the walks we'd be taking!
    Overall though, It seems lots of people like them

    There.

    Yes they do, best $25 I spent for something to keep the birds safe.
