Types Of harnesses

How many types of harnesses are there? I want to get the colorful one for my tiels but can't find it anywhere.

They do aviator harnesses which can have either a leash or a flight training line. They have feather tether harnesses (I have ordered one for Joey... He screams if I leave him alone for a while so my grandparents want me to take him places) which come with a leash. And the bird diapers you can buy also have an attachable leash. I can't send you links as I'm on my phone sorry

I've always been a bit unsure about the harnesses...Especially with smaller birds.

My vet has trained her birds to fly wearing the aviator harnesses. I think that is wonderful enrichment for the birds, but we also have hawks here. She cautions that you have to have spotters constantly looking for hawks.

Rachel,
Do you know the name of the harness you are seeking?


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!
