About This Item


  • Safe and comfortable harness and leash that’s made to be escape-proof—prepared without buckles, clips, or loose stitches that your birdie can remove.
  • The elastic leash adjusts from chest to back as your birdie climbs and flies, and won't pull back suddenly when he reaches the end of the leash.
  • Comfort-fitting, t-shirt-like collar design feels like a cozy hug around their neck, avoids their wings, and lays so comfortably they can walk or fly as they please.
  • Efficient design has fewer pressure contact points on your feathered friend, allowing for movement and comfort.
  • Not just for feathered friends—this duo is perfect size to lead other small animals on adventures, such as rabbits, ferrets, and some reptiles.

Questions & Answers

9 Customer Questions

I have three Coturnix Quail that weigh in at the XX-Small category, but I was wondering if the leash under their belly will effect their walking?
Answer by ChewySep 18, 2018
The collar is designed like a comfort-fitting shirt that hugs the neck, stays on the shoulders, and lays comfortably around the edge of the crop so your bird can safely walk or fly in style.

Does this fit ducks
Answer by ChewyAug 08, 2018
The XX-Large option may be suitable for a duck as this size is used for larger birds and geese.

Is this harness good for chickens
Answer by ChewyDec 10, 2019
This harness can be used on chickens.

Can it be used for a budgie?
Answer by ChewyJul 14, 2022
This may be used for a budgie. The sizing chart may be located by clicking the “Size” tab, on the product page. Most small cockatoo's would wear size Small, however it is best to size by weight.

size was not right

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.

Sizing problems

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

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 .

Loki aabout town

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.

who has the patience for this? Not Me!

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!!

Bird hates it

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.

Best harness I’ve had!

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.
