The smallest is only available in four colors. GOD I wish I could get Vivi a purple one... WHY are there color restrictions!?

One of the best things about this video is that I get to watch how you put the harness on several times in a row. :)

Putting the harness on is the easy part. Getting Truman to agree to getting paraded around in pink is a whole other story!

Some people are having problems with a tight fit with the part that goes over the birds head and really want to know what is the recommended way to fix it and also how to remove the harness. so what do you think about making a video addressing these problems for them ?

Removing the harness is putting it on in reverse. The only difficulty with that is going against the feathers but the bird learns to work with you for negativevreinforcement (having the harness off). I would absolutely not recommend modifying the harness. It isn't stitched, it is welded together. So you cant just change it on your own without making it weak. It's just about getting the right size harness and teaching your bird to help put it on and want to wear it. I think most people have trouble because they are forcing it onto resisting bird. Teach your bird to be calm and help out and it's as easy as I show.

@Michael, do you think that my :gcc: could be retrained to wear a harness?
She absolutey hates them and is terrified of them... What I currently have is lthis but in medium, http://birdsville.net.au/accessories/ha ... ness-lead/ .
When she was younger we would have somebody holding her while the other person would put it on. BIG MISTAKE. Now she is older and independant, as soon as it gets within 10 metres of her, she will give me a BIG bite and fly of screaming. I want to retrain her. I know it will be hard, but still I want to be able to take her outside. I use positive reinforcment on her but she has her own mind and her own barriers, and I dont want to push her and destroy our relationship.
I would buy the aviator harness, but I am uncertain if I am able to show Tilly(gcc) it is ok. And dont want to just spend the money and it go to waste when I could buy her a bunch of toys or trick training stuff. Sadly If I do get the aviator harness it will probably be from an AUS site because American postage is really expensive :cry: . But I know you did it with Kili do you think things would work out for me and my birdie in this situation?
And anthough she be little, she is fierce ~Shakespeare

It won't be easy but I am sure it is possible. I would very strongly reading/applying my book first and then retraining the harness using the method in my harness training DVD. Most other ways only kead to problems as you well know.
