As in for their birds? If so, I have a friend that live literally a two minute walk down the road, well, down the roads ;) She's pretty good with animals, but she is kind of scared of birds. When I get more birds, I'm definitely getting a professional to do it :)

 

All I need to do, is write down a list of what needs to be done, when to do them, where everything is, and then it's sweet :)

Hi all what do you do when you go away

 

Hello I always took my birds with me. I built an aviary on a small trailer....B.J.

I have a professional pet sitter who comes twice a day. I do like Flip Trainer said, and leave her a sheet with a detailed list of what needs to be done. Since things change from one year to the next, she will come over a day ahead of time so I can show her where things are and what may be different this time. She also takes care of my cats and dogs and fish tanks.

 

If the trip is short, say just a couple of days, I would leave them with a supply of food and water, and they will be okay on their own. (But not if there are any nesting at the time.)

 

If I didn't have a noisy flock of birds, I would leave a radio on, so the quiet doesn't scare them.

It depends Dilster are you talking aviary birds or just a pet or two in a cage?

 

With my aviary I have hanging feeders and water bottles. They will last at least a week with nobody having to enter aviary. My neighbour feeds our dog and checks on aviary to see no birds are hurt or caught etc. if so, she can enter aviary but I never go and leave nesting birds. Cage birds would be different, maybe you could leave them with someone or take them with you,

I was wondering this the other day.

 

when I had just 2 budgies, I left them with lots of food and then had my dad come check them.

that was while i spent a week in melbourne.

Then when we got back we spent one night at home so I topped it everything up and then we had to leave again to go away some where else.

I'm sure they missed me but they was fine.

 

Now I have a aviary I think I will have to get some good seed and water feeders.

 

them honey blocks from woolies are cheap 2.40 for a big one. putting in a bunch of spinach I'm sure they wouldn't eat that in week.

. putting in a bunch of spinach I'm sure they wouldn't eat that in week.

 

But it would spoil, so I would only leave as much spinach as they could eat in a day so there will be nothing left to spoil.
