    Donna, there are many people who use FLIGHT SUITS (aka:
    diapers) for their birds. I do not, but I did have someone
    who purchased a baby quaker from me bring it to visit wearing
    a flight suit. They had started when it was very young, and
    the bird didn't seem to mind at all. Friendly little guy--
    goes to everyone and they take it everywhere so the flight
    suit was a good choice for them as they were worried about
    droppings in uninvited places. It prevented any messes here,
    but I still wouldn't use them myself. I feel like even though
    it prevents messes during visits, the droppings will only soil
    the feathers and be uncomfortable for the bird. I cannot
    speak for the parrot, so who really knows if they like it or
    not?

    My point is, plenty of people use them. Can't knock you if
    you're going to, but it may be hard to get a 5mo old lovebird
    to accept the garment. Just be aware that if you are causing
    it much stress by trying to get it to wear the thing, it's
    best to nix the idea.

    As far as the leash is concerned, I won't even go there. We
    clip.
