I ordered mine according to the sizing they have. I have a green cheek conure, it says petite if for conure size but that was too small. I still tried to put it on him and that was a big mistake, my poor bird almost died, it would not come off and I had to hold him tight to untangle him and take it off! Horrible experience and I don’t think I’ll be trying another harness again.
Purchased the "petite" for my green cheek conure as both the label and website instruction video says that's the size for a GCC. Head loop is much too small, I won't even risk trying to put it on. The conure in the instructional video on the website can easily fit it's head through with plenty of room, this size wouldn't even get around my birds head.
This should cost 50 cents, so that you can buy a bunch of them
Good quality. Medium fit my Sulpur Crested Cockatoo perfectly.
I love this harness. I have 4 parrotlett girls and these fit perfect!
I have always been a fan of the Aviator harness. It's sturdy ,well designed & there is no other harness out there quite like this one. I purchase this for my baby greenwing macaw so there was no problem putting it on. What helped me years ago was yo practice putting the harness a a parrot stuffed animal or there are many video on utubes .
This is a wonderful product. I worked with Loki daily to get her used to the harness. It took about 2 weeks. Today I took her out for a walk and visit. She picked at it a.little but for the most part is gettig used to it. The thing to remember is it is not 1 and done. It takes time. She was very opposed to to the harness to begin with. She still needs a little convincing but will willingly put her head in. She is a cockatiel if the harnesses for larger birds are the same material I can see where it can be chewed thru quickly, but for a small bird it is great.
it's quite obvious why they use a stuffed bird in the instructional video because it would take 3xs as long if they used a real bird. It's nearly impossible to get on and off. As for chew proof, Ha ha ha ha!!
My bird did not want me to put it on her. When we finally got her to put it on, she hated it. This harness doesn't have any quick release or way to adjust where it sits between neck and shoulders, just a body strap that can be adjusted. It also requires a very clam bird willing to be handled a lot or willing to step into it.
I got this for my 11lbs chicken and it fits great, is super sturdy, and way more comfortable than a vest style harness. My chicken has had a vest harness in the past and she would not move the second I put it on her but this harness is much more comfortable for her and she is always very happy to be out in the grass with it on.
