    I've used something similar to the Feather Tether on my Red
    Belly...I'll have to look for the company, becasue it was far
    superior to the Feather Tether...The hardware on the Feather
    Tether (to me anyway) is too big and cumbersome for a bird,
    but I know there are many who use them...Best to start on a
    young bird, or else your bird will probably give you hell for
    even trying to put it on, LOL

    The flight suits, I have never tried...if you do try them,
    remember to take it off often to "dump" the poop...Leaving it
    on for too long at a time coudl cause poop build up to touch
    the bird and really irritate it, or cause an infection.
