The other problem with bird diapers especially with hen birds is the mess is held against the same vent that eggs appear from and an internal ovarian infection coud occur.
House training works better using methods like Michaels. It is also cheaper and more enviromentally friendly than paying out for disposable diapers.
When I have taken a bird out on a harness in the past and couldn't always allow it off me to poop I had a home made towell shoulder cover to protect my clothes.
I don't dress my dogs up either. They only have basic dog coats for very bad weather for outside use only.

Is it possible to change it without taking off the flightsuit? (Say if I have the cockatiel outside for 2 hours and I wanted to change it on the spot instead of going home to change it?)
