Post: Went Camping With Our Birds!!
Posted by Rachel in TX on 6/21/07
Just wondered if anyone else has done this before? We had
gone on a camping trip and had my family watch our animals
while we were away. Well, our Greenwing didn't like the
fact that he wasn't getting the attention or interaction
that he so deserves & starting picking at his feathers on
the top area of his wings.
My hubby & I decided that we will take our birds with us
on the next trip to see how it goes. (Everyone thought we
had definitely fallen off our rockers when we told them of
We carefully planned out how we would travel with them &
what cages and what location in our travel trailer they
would go. We also knew that this may confine us to the
campsite or get us kicked out! lol. (They really don't
like people to tell them bye & they also get really
excited when knew people come up to them.) Well, I missed
the local bird shows, so I had to go to several bird
stores for extra toys since we were going to have them
sleep in smaller cages.
Finally, we were all packed up and ready to begin our
vacation! (Bringing birds along for a trip is a lot like
packing for an infant or two!) Our birds love to go for
rides be a part of our family. When we arrived at the
campsite, the first thing to do once we leveled the camper
was to get the birds situated. I was so worried that they
would get too loud! If you ever want to be alone & no one
to "bother" you while camping.... Don't bring any
animals, especially birds! Most people do not see or much
less get to interact with these beautiful babies!
I just have to brag on them! My GW & Illiger were so well
behaved & enjoyed ALL of the attention that they received
on vacation! They will be going with us again & again! I
will not leave them behind ever again!
Does anyone else have any experiences like this? Please
