there is also a user here Daiversion who is very knowledgeable in all aspect of magic, you may want to PM him and pose your question to him. .
Thanks , fcchief, but bird magic is not one of my specialities.
I could probably give Richards the references he needs to look up, but practically speaking I have never performed in public with doves or parakeets. (my practical experience with animal magic is limited to rabbits.)
That said, I agree with BBunnell . It would not be a good idea to try to put two birds into a single harness . What I know about bird productions is only from reading about it , but I understand the basic principle of the harnesses and they are not designed to fit more than one bird at a time. I think if you get your hands on some of the literature or videos on the craft (Tony Clark and General Grant are highly recommended teaching resources from what I have heard ) then I think you will learn what you need to adapt dove techniques to parakeets .
It seems to me that almost anything you could do with a dove you could also do with a parakeet. There have been magicians like Jack Kodell, Johnny Hart , and Paul Fiedler who have done whole acts based on using parakeets.
I've read about the videos Secrets of Bird Magic Vol. 1 and 2 by Dave Womach and a series called A Bird in the Hand Vol. 1 and 2 by Ramon Galindo , which features magic with parakeets.
Those should give you some good ideas for the kind of routines you could perform with parakeets .
