Travel cages and harnesses suitable for all occasions
Harness training a bird is best achieved when your bird is very young. Many bird breeders will train your bird to be comfortable wearing a harness as they wean it. You can purchase adventure bound bird harnesses in a variety of sizes and colours. A medium bird harness is best suited to African greys while we have a small bird harness for Parakeets.
Each harness has a leash so you can loop it around your hand and the bird cannot fly away. Adjustable harnesses for parrots are a great way of safely allowing your bird freedom and taking it outdoors with you.
The idea of a parrot harness is not for everyone, you may prefer a bird travel cage. The travel cages for birds come with carry handles, pull out trays, perches and feeder bowls. You may need this if your bird needs a trip to the vets in which case our medium and small travel cages fold flat for easy storage when not in use.
If you use the travel cage for your bird out in the garden or for trips out they associate it with positive experiences and will happily go inside, making it far less stressful than having to catch the bird.
Our medium travel cage at Scarletts works great as a holiday cage for birds, staying in a caravan or in the uk.
There are also parrot rucksacks and bird travel bags for if you are walking a long distance and find carrying a travel cage too heavy or awkward. These are better suited to birds who do not chew and are carried over the shoulder.
Scarletts has a wide range of styles of bird travel bags in stock and our low priced travel cages are stocked by most people as a parrot essential item in case of emergency vets trips, fires or need to house a poorly bird in a smaller space.
Travel cages can make a great hospital cage and if you put a towel over the top they are a good place to nebulise a bird.
