Red face Can lovebirds wear feather teathers??

Some sites say they are ok and some don't.

Do any of you guys use them ??

I think it would be the petite size.

I hear the feather tethers arent as safe because it goes around the crop as well I have heard some birds escape. I really think the aviator is the best choice for safe bird flight.

So this thingy that the birds wear outside, will it work for a Sun Conure? What size of bird is the smallest that can be put in one?
I've never tried any of them out before.

Yeah I use the aviator harness its fabulous, it comes with a cd on how to put it on and everything, I think Russ was a small but the back tells you the different sizes, talk to your local pet stores to see if they can order it in, a petsmart should be able to

I think the small conures are the smallest size like green cheeks but it might have lovie size too
