Default Transporting a Sick or Injured Budgie

How to transport a sick or injured bird if no carrier is available.

To transport the bird, use a cardboard box lined with a soft towel. Cardboard causes less feather damage than a wire cage when transporting an exited bird that might be jumping around inside the container. Do not use shredded paper or cotton to line the box, as these can easily get caught in the bird's toes or get wrapped around its neck. As well do not use green grass cuttings, as the dampness could give the bird a chill. For younger or injured birds, a towel or facial tissue can be bunched around the bird to provide support and prevent it from resting in an uncomfortable, splayed position. Once the bird is tucked safely in its box, a lid with holes punched in it or a paper towel can be placed over the box to prevent the bird from jumping out and to also give it some privacy. Frightened birds find darkness calming.


* If you have a travel cage, this can be an ideal way to transport your budgie. Keep the cage covered so your budgie has an opportunity to stay quiet and calm. Also keep just the basics in the cage (i.e. food, water, a couple of perches). Remove anything that might swing into your budgie during transport, such as toys.
