Nathalie -- to give you some piece of mind... I had to go away for 4/5 days after having my budgie for about a month, and I had a neighbor friend who has owned budgies for a long time & has 3 now... check in on him daily... but he didn't get the same amount of attention that he normally would have. I bought a timer for lights and television, so that it was on during the day and would turn off at bedtime. ...He was totally fine. I was worried, but I chose to have a sitter check in on him vs. going to a boarding facility because I was nervous about him catching something from other birds. (That's probably paranoid, but that's what I decided to do. Also I thought it might be stressful for him to be around a lot of new birds since he's not used to it, etc.)
Anyhow... it worked out well, he was totally fine & happy. He gave me about a 5 min. cold shoulder upon my return, but when he actually noticed I was back he did happy chirping and head bobbing. ... I think your Rocky is going to be a-ok while your gone.
I hope Snowy is back to his old old self soon. ...!
