Hello lovelies, my family is talking about leaving the country in a couple years, and if that happens, I would like to follow suit. I am losing sleep at night, however, over what to do about my dear Milou and Chickonia. They are children to me. If they canít come with me, I am not going.
I am scared sick about taking them with me on an airplane, though. Their ears could pop and this could scare them. They might be too cold, or too hot, or get motion sick, or...? Milou especially has a sensitive stomach.
Perhaps taking a cruise on a big boat that they wonít feel rocking back and forth, and having their own room, would be better? I know Iím not anthropomorphizing when I say budgies are very emotional and get just as attached as we do to our families; I had a budgie whoís mate died and he cried for a week and didnít eat for days (I was afraid heíd starve himself to death, but he survived for 10 more years)!
While I have never done it, people do. I think you need to prepare yourself for a lot of headache, and red tape but it will be worth it to have your babies. Here is a link to a recent thread with somebody doing it....
In addition to the information Randy provided, you'll need to check with the country you are going into to determine what their customs policy is with regard to bringing budgies into thecountry and whether or not a quarantine period is required. Each country has their own regulations.
