    Or you could get her used to wearing a harness. There are a few
    different kinds out there that have leashes attached. If she
    will wear them. Some birds won't. Also, are you sure you want to
    have her on your shoulder? Most vets and breeders I know do not
    recommend it. I don't let any of my birds on my shoulder because
    you have less control that way.
