Moving with Your Bird

You’ve got everything set: The movers are scheduled, the boxes are packed (well, most of them, anyway), the old house has been sold, the new one rented, and the kids are registered at their new schools. But there’s one more worry: How will your pet manage the move?

Just like children, each bird has his or her own personality, and each will respond differently. Some will mope in their cages, nervous and shy; others will squawk, indignant at having to make a change. Still others – particularly those well-traveled birds that have been extensively socialized and exposed to lots of new situations – will take the move in stride.
