Maybe with a few more short tries, Mallorn will get used to being outdoors and even have some fun communicating with the wild birds.
Some of my recently acquired birds would also get apprehensive the very first time I put their cages outdoors, but once they saw how happy and at ease my other (older birds) were, they would very quickly adjust to the change of scenery and take advantage of all the perks of being outdoors for a while.

If those budgies boys for adoption were close to my area, I would snatch them up in a heartbeat! I do hope they find a good home.

I will be waiting for the pictures!

Actually, I want to get Griffin to wear a hoodie... This company has such cute parrot clothes I'm not sure how he'll take to it, if there will be much blood drawn (mine) and we need to train him to it, or if he'll just put it right on. Fashion Hoodies - Avian Fashions
I don't know what the birds think, but I can't relate to the "putting birds in human clothes so they look cuter" thing... I think they're cute enough in their natural state, and if you want to see your bird in a hoodie, there's always Photoshop. Not trying to be a wet blanket but I just don't get it. Are they even comfortable with fabric shoved in between their wings and their bodies?

I do agree that she may like it more after a few tries! We'll see if I get her out over the summer
I hope they find a good home too, they are gorgeous! I mean, you are in Portugal, so a little unreasonable

Mallorn is one spoilt budgie LOL. I love reading about her antics and I often get little comedy skits in my mind as to her and your interactions
Haha, glad you enjoy reading! She is quite a character

As for Her Highness I can just picture her turning up her nose at even the thought of hanging out with peasant birds! Lol
I have a UV lamp for Noah (well I bought it for Oisin really for when he was sick).
I agree, I'm going back Monday to see the doves (again ) and I'll check on her
That's exactly what she made me think of!
"Put me back in my fortress RIGHT NOW! I wouldn't want any of the peasant birds to think I actually want to spend time with them!"
Silly girl

I am by no means an expert, but I bet there are cockatoos who enjoy it. They are very "cuddly" and so might find it comforting. On the other hand there are certainly parrots who would hate hate hate them.

Yeah, I get your point... I guess to each their own .
Some birds take right to things on their body whether it be a harness or flight suit or "clothes", and it's obvious that it doesn't bother them. Others may never become used to it, and therefore not be a good candidate.

You may be right... I'm no expert either.
