Hi Freda
Mom has never had my wings clipped so I am fully flighted. So when I go outside it has to be in a cage. Mom has this neat backpack type cage that she will take me in for walks and short trips in the car. I sure like the car rides. She did get me a flight harness but I won't wear it. Just find having something around my neck to be toooo scary. As for sunshine, mom gets me out in the sun as much as she can. A few hours a day at least but she always makes sure I have some shade to go into if I get too hot. When I can't be outside she uses a full spectrum lamp. The Vet said that the lamp was a good thing when I can't be outside. Mom said she can notice a differance in my feather condition and colour when I get enough UV either from the lamp or outside. You should have seen me when I came out of quarantine. I hadn't had any sun/UV lamp for 30 days and my tail had gone from a lovely red to an insipid pink. The rest of my feathers had also paled. Mom got me out in the sun and within a week or so my colours came back. I think it just goes to show that it is important. MM
