A Long Trip For A Young Budgie?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

 

As I couldn't find what I was looking for I've come to ask you guys for some help and advice.

I'm planning to get a new young budgie in the next couple of days, but I'm working,

This means I can't exactly take a cage to work, and I don't have my drivers license yet so I can't just keep it in the car.

 

To get to work I commute on a shuttle and that's 50km to work.

The budgie will have to be in a small cardboard box with breathing holes for about 2 hours and will have to travel that distance with me in the box on that noisy shuttle bus.

 

Is this really safe for the budgie?

I'm scared of it dying from trauma.

 

So if anyone could give me some advice on how to make this journey a little more comfortable for the little guy,

or even if it is safe at all to do this.

 

Thanks very much.

Get yourself a small cage, or a small wooden travel box or buy a cheap plastic mouse cage ( small ) for the trip. I think the cardboard boxes are stressful places to be so I feel sure two hours would be far too much for the bird in one of those.

Borrow something better if you cant buy something.

 

Anything you buy can be used in the future for a travel box to the vets for instance.

Ah this is an excellent idea!

I wouldn't have thought of the small mouse cage.

Thank you so much!

What l do when l travel with my birds for 5 hours. I usually place a towel over the cage. So they are not stressed out. Also, l place a little bit of millet seeds in the cage too.

I was able to borrow my boyfriend's cage, then a wooden box.

They travelled just fine :)

No stress at all when I got them home, they did really well!

 

But thank you :D
