Look who's in a harness!

It's senegal Duke! He's practicing safety for when he's going outside when it's warmer with Charlie the quaker

The next bird going to be harness trained is going to be Tagoo the african grey

He is a lot better with it now than he was 2 weeks ago. I let him on my shoulder this time when he was in the harness - he was more relaxed and wasn't that bothered about the harness. When I took his harness off he was more concerned about his feathers being ruffled and he was preening like mad

I will fly them when the weather is better, but first I want them to be very comfortable in the harness like as if they were wearing clothes.

I have already prepared some strong kite line to attach to the harness about 70 meters long - 70 meters is a good distance

He's still looking sceptical, but I'm sure he will enjoy.
Have much fun with him playing outside.

Hahaha, how cute is that!!!

If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.
