My friend has a Hahns Macaw and a Caique. Neither one of them actually like their flight suits, but they have gotten used to them.

This same friend is the one who gave me Angelina, my Parrotlet. Along with all her toys, cages and other stuff, she gave me Angelina's flight suit. It's a teeny tiny thing and my friend never got the nerve to try to get it on her. If you know how Parrotlets can be, you'll know I'm sure not going to try it either!

Good luck!

Levi has a flight suit. I can put it on him, as he lets me do just about anything fairly easily, but he dislikes it very much. He's actually quite clumsy in it, and tumbles often. I decided, after a few times that I'm not using it again. It's not worth making him so miserable!

I had a flight suit for Roni, but she always seemed afraid of it, so I never pushed her. However, Stanley let me put her flight suit on her. She was so clumsy in it that I took it off and never put it back on. I tried it on her 3 times with the same result each time.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!
