Post: Cockatiel boarding
Posted by Pebs on 6/26/07
Ive been asked to tiel-sit a cockatiel for 3 weeks. I have
not made a decision, I said I needed to think about it for
a day or two.
I would like some input into this from u all. Altho, I have
had my teil, Star for 6 years, I have never kept anyone
else's tiel before, every, let along for 3 weeks.
How would it affect Star? Would I be able to let them
interact together or should I keep them seperate? Ive been
told this tiel is tame and can even talk a little
bit...however I was told that they USE to get him out of
the cage all the time, until they got a dog and since
getting the dog they can not get the bird out. I have no
idea how long they have had the dog tho so, I dont know if
its been days, weeks, months, or even years. I will find
out tho, if I choose to do this. If its been a real long
time since the bird has had out of cage time, then I really
dont plan to get it out of the cage either, however if its
been a short time, would it be ok for me to? I also asked
about illnesses and such and its a healthy bird so, I dont
know if I should still quaruntee or not? Also, if I choose
to do this, does anyone have any idea what I should charge?
I know at one pet boarding place near, they charge $6/day
for cockatiels so, I was thinking I should go cheaper than
that so, maybe I should charge $3/day??
Any input to help me make my decision would be appreciated.
