Talking Bird sweaters and hoodies

Have you guys seen these bird hoodies and sweaters? Somebody mentioned the idea as a joke, which was pretty funny; but it became hysterical as soon as I discovered that they are REAL!

Hoodie: http://www.flightquarters.com/bird-d...tegory_Code=FH

Sweater: http://www.flightquarters.com/bird-d...egory_Code=FSW

Aren't they adorable?

When would a bird need to wear a sweater?

Hey.. I think they're adorable!

Winter here can get awfully cold, so that's about the only time I'd put it on them.

I don't think I'd ever be able to get it on my budgies and live to tell the tale...they are small, but have a lot of fight in them!

Its to cute though!

It's cute, but not necessary.. I can't imagine a bird who would like to wear a sweater. It's something humans like, because it's 'cute', but I don't think the birds are liking it that much as humans do

alot of people buy them for birds that pluck so they cant reach their feathers and they can heal

They are cute but my budgies would go berserk if I came near with one of those.

I would put one of the flight suits on my little Conure. No worry about it flying with only one wing but it would be nice on occasion to show Mo off without the fear of it dropping poop.

Hehe, the sweaters are cute, but the only birds that need them are pluckers, especially if they've plucked bald. Then they really should wear a little sweater so they stay warm.

Goober would probably let me put one on her, I've actually thought about it before

I can see the sweater for pluckers but the hooded sweater is just over the top.

Oh, wow, that's a shame! I was wondering why we weren't able to order anymore at the old shop.

It's very cute, but I honestly don't see the point in having it on your bird for fun!
It looks quite uncomfortable. >

The sweater was supposed to be a joke. I wouldn't put my birds in one either
