Q. Are flight suits safe for parrots? I've read many things online and they all seem to differ in opinion. I want to be able to take my Afrrican grey out

Answered By

A. Like you say there is many differing opinions on them personally I'm not keen as I feel they don't allow them to express their natural tendencies and may stress them. But I guess you could argue that point with keeping any animal in captivity full stop. I guess it depends on how well you get on with your parrot and if it is totally calm and relaxed with you and trusts you.
