Should I Get My 30-year-old Parrot a Harness?

Questions about a harness for My African Grey.

 

She is 30 and really wants to “go for a walk” whenever I take the dog.

 

She stands guard by the door and flaps her wings which she does whenever we put jackets on.

 

I just need some feedback I guess.

 

I live in a rural area.

 

Dear Nancy

Harnesses are available for your parrot however, if your bird has never worn a harness before, at 30 years old she may not enjoy one.

 

If you look at most videos showing them being put on a bird, they are usually babies and baby birds are more adaptable than an older bird.

 

 

They take a little training, it is not just put it on and go outside.

 

Personally, I would go with a small cage on a cart or even a birdie backpack.

 

If you would like further help with selecting a harness or something else, please let me know.

I wish you the best

Catherine
