I think we will need pics to determine the correct answer for you.

I think I found the ultimate bird shirt for a man or a woman:



Now getting your bird to approach you while wearing this shirt is a whole other story

Re: what if you have b00bs?

Macaws have been known to pinch nipples... and motorboating isn't necessarily out of the ordinary... If the head fits...

Re: what if you have b00bs?

What did I just read though? Definitely brightened my day.
Despite being one with breast lumps I've never actually given a thought to the implications of having them whilst handling larger, potentially nippy birds.

Re: what if you have b00bs?

And, a boring answer is likely having the Parrot facing outwards!?!? Just maybe the answer, but just so boring.

Re: what if you have b00bs?

Good thinking but...

The outward facing parrot can still bend over and chomp down on finger/hand/wrist/ forearm if so inclined...
(and that is what the "bring the bird in close to your body" was to prevent from happening )

and ... there is the extra handicap: macaws (at least this one, but like I read it its a general macaw-thing) have a "touchy butt-end".
So away facing bird means that the (oversized) tailend is just waiting to get bumped by the moving human perch.


The number one reason for Sunny to lash out out is.... you guessed it already: "Something touched my tail, so now I bite you to defend myself !"

I will just have to face the fact that I will be unlucky one of those days...
(hmmm, compared to that the whole "macaw-motorboating" sounds positively appealing)
I still have plenty of bandaids/ sporttape/ ducttape in the house, so... I will survive

(got a marvelous fingerchomp today because she rolled over and got her tail-stump stuck/ pushed up against something. She is very consistent: if something is not right ... its by default *my* fault!)
