Can someone explain the flight suit to me.. And share any experiences with them..
I am planning to get two of them or maybe just one since I doubt I'd want to take them out at the same time. I'm waiting to find a really good quality one that I can trust. Mine are growing out their wings now.
Harness huh...it did look alot more secure. That flight suit has these tiny thin straps that I just can't trust. I didnt remember which one you recommended.If i was going to get a harness to use with a flighted bird i would go for an aviator harness, no question about it. I would never take a flighted bird out in a flight suit.
I'm glad you told me- I wouldn't trust velcro either!Aviator harnesses are used to flight train all the big birds, and they come in tiel size. They don't have any buckles to rub against the feathers, and they're supposedly really comfy for the birds to wear. Flight suits do up with velcro, and to attach a leash you put an insert between the velcro bits. I think we all know that velcro eventually wears thin, and stops working, i would hate for that to happen when a bird decided to take off.
Nope, feather tethers have buckles which can rub against the feathers and cause irritations.this...http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=5059+6322+13410&pcatid=13410
