since the jacket i ordered for caleb is a bit too small. i decided to make him a t'shirt. not as sturdy as the jacket. but it'll get the job done.
still need to tweak it a bit. but he seems to like it just fine.

ADVICE NEEDED: my instincts tell me that even tho its an easily removed item, do not leave him in it when i'm not home. Ya'll thoughts on that?

OMG that is so cute!  And it matches his crest!
Hmmm, is it just a pull over or does it attach in the back with ties or velcro?  I would be a little leary to leave it on when you are not around unless it can be safely taken off (by him of course) with no dangers or injury.  dknow

Thanks ya'll. he seems to like it just fine. he's wearing it right now in his room and i can hear him picking at it a bit. but that's what its for, right? so he doesnt pick at his chest instead?  it should be quite easy for him to remove if he wants to. i didnt use industrial velcro, just the standard stuff. of course this is just the test run. the UF is for the University of FLorida. that's where his vet is.  smile3

I LOVE it.  It matches him!
I would think that it would be ok to leave it on him, that is when he would need it anyway.  It does not seem that he would not be able to chew through it if he had to.

i think he will be ok too, he may just leave it alone.. he is not used to it, be he sure doesn't seem to mind!! most birds tell you RIGHTAWAY if they are going to have a problem with it.

I think you should leave him in it while at work. Maybe have someone you trust to check on him a couple times a day for the first couple of days? (if possible)

sondra, all my friends are between 200 and 1500 miles away.  ya wanna run by while i'm at work tomorrow nite? patti, you're the closest, howzaboudit?  laffhrd 

 ashamed  sorry, couldnt resist being a sarcastic snot.  smile3

i only work about 5 mins from the house but i've found when i come home in the middle of my shift it confuses and annoys the fids, dogs, AND the cat.

i made a pink one, and as i was taking it off him to tweak it a bit, i bumped his side. poor guy freaked. i think it hurt. which just gives more credit to the old injury theory. he even bit at it, grazed my thumb in the process  slaph 
I put a white one on him and he was scared to death, trembling like a leaf, i think he thought it was gonna hurt again. i cuddled him while he wore it and made him realize it didnt hurt. i'm hoping he associates the pain with the pink one, and i just wont use pink material anymore. The white one is linen and has a fringe. i also made that one so it connects on the opposite side as his injury, less chance of bumping it. after i put him on his cage wearing it. he sat there a min, picked at the back for a sec.... snatched that bad boy RIGHT OFF.  dmblaf slaph  oh well, that's the point, right? it has to be easy for him to remove if i'm gonna leave him in it. i just gotta figure out how to convince him he WANTS to wear it.  think

That is just too cute for words!!  lol And I'm not laughing at Caleb, I'm just laughing at how cute he looks wearing it in those first pics. He seemed to look proud of his new "feathers".  happyjack

You did a super job of making that t'shirt for him.  thumb

I read recently in something about a lady who had a 'too that plucked her feathers , so she made cute little clothes for her. Hers was a girl & she designed all kind of frilly stuff. It turned into a business for her, but I can't for the life of me remember what her company name is. I remember her saying her 'too loved the clothes so much that even after she no longer needed them she still loved wearing her duds. Could be the start of something big for you & Caleb.   wink1

beautiful work and ingenious!   great job tozie!  i think he'll adjust to wearing it b/c you like him to wear it.  give him positive associations and i'm sure there will be no trouble :)  he looks so wonderful and happy!  you are such a good bird mom!
