Default People Good With Colours?

I would love some input as to which solid colours (not crazy about most patterns) would look good on the following two birds. Will be order one soon and I don't trust my sense of style

Flightsuits:

CBC (bird 1)

FSC (bird 2)

Thanks!

Wait. People dress their birds? I totally didn't know that was a thing.

I would go maybe...Caribbean for bird 1? And um...ask them to get some new fabric choices for bird 2?

Haha it's not for aesthetics, I think the birds look much better without them Flightsuits are harnesses that you can use to take your bird outside and out and about with you without worrying (they come with a lightweight leash lanyard) and they also function as a sort of "diaper" so you don't have to worry about droppings when you are indoors.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Edit: I figure since the bird I am getting will have to wear one he may as well look good in it!

It's not exactly a thing there are bird owners who would never consider it. It's mostly for the purpose of using a "leash" and preventing the bird from making messes when out of its cage.

Great bird choices. Are you getting one or both? I think I would go with a blue flightsuits.

I'm not a bird person, it didn't even occur to me that it was a harness/leash (looked at all the pictures and didn't see anything that looked like a tether could be attached), I just figured bird people were as crazy as dog people.

Congrats on the birds by the way .

Exactly, there are only a few specific situations that I would like to use it for (occasional trips outside and visits to the old folk's home) but for those situations it will be super convenient.

Thanks! Getting one and just having a really tough time making a decision. As far as I have heard both are very similar in personality so it's mostly just aesthetics. I am more attracted to the CBC and much prefer the larger and cobbier body but it's also more expensive so...

I also totally blipped over the fact that you said solid colors. Yep, clearly losing my mind today, sorry. I agree with crazed on the red then for the first one (picked caribbean because it was the only one that sort of matched the bird's colors and was sort of, um...muted/not-thhparkly ) but I'd personally go hunter for the second.

I'd go with the light blue/aqua for bird one, and the royal blue for bird two. Or whichever blue matches their blue feathers the best. I think that a hunter green or red would be either too much or a bit Christmas-sy.
