One of my Facebook friends has a number of parrots, he lives in one of the distant regional areas of Western Australia. He is quite a good parrot keeper and gives his birds good care but one thing bothers me. He dresses his birds up in hoodies and costumes, even when they hate it. I challenged him about this and he says its a training tool so they will accept towelling at the vets.  Which sounds like an excuse to me. I taught my corella to accept towelling by playing peek-a-boo, and she is angelic at the vets, usually returning to me from out the back, riding a vets shoulder. What do people think? Are costumes/hoodies a kind of cruelty or am I being over sensitive?
