So then thats the reason lol you basically forced something new onto her and she didn't know what this thing was you were putting around her body, Same with the Harness the bird has to want to wear it.

The only thing I can say about flight suits is when Riki my big mollucan came to us from calif she had a tie/dyed one on and it looked like a big torpedo coming out her back side. She didn't like it , she was imbarressed , scared her woman hood and I took it off her right away and she has never pooped where she isn't suppose too or in the car or on us. After much therapy over the imbarresment she has regained her alpha super girl attitude and the memory is BUTT a blurr!!! :lol: BW
