Some of my birds are the same, and others just don't like it so I don't force them.

Some just hate them
I used to harness 2 of mine regular

The other one will scream the whole time it's on her so iv given up usin it at mo
Iv got a aviary n a pak o bird to take them outside so no big deal x

His travel cage is a cat box, can't take him out in that can I? :-s

I jus don't know how I can begin to try training him with it when he is terrified of it, do you think maybe starting again with a different colour harness?

How did i know you were gonna say red :crazy:
Red is a warning colour , hence the tail fanning when they feel the need to threaten 

I wouldn't waste my 20 odd quid on a new colour I'd spend the 26 on a small wire travel cage on Scarlett's, that way he will defo be able to go out in the sunshine :thumbsup:

I wouldn't risk a dye as you won't know what it contains
Regardless of him havin a tail , red will meant a threat of aggression to him as another bird would fan his tail as a sign of aggression , it could or couldn't be the reson he doesn't like it  :pecking:
