I am expecting a flight suit in the mail for Parsley any day now. I will let everyone know how she does. She is a 3 yr old linnie so it could be a challenge.
On the older birds, it certainly does take some effort.
his cute red flight suit. I bought it for him when he was probably around a year old, and he still hates it to this day. I've tried keeping it near
his cage (but outside) so he can observe it and learn that it isn't harmful. I would move it closer each day, then eventually inside of the cage. No luck.
So, I decided to just get it on him, but it's impossible to without using a towel because he throws a fit and bites. Once it's on him, he doesn't care about anything around him, as he devotes 110% effort trying to get the darn suit off
He picks at it, bites, flaps his wings - nothing works, but he keeps at it. So I've given up.
Maybe one day he will decide he wants to explore the outdoors and will hop right into the suit.
