Default Going on vacation...how should I keep Bella entertained?

Hi Guys,

I used to have 2 budgies until one died a few months ago and my vet told me to hold off on getting another companion for Bella right away since she has been known to get feisty from time to time. I think it's a common behaviour trait with female English budgies?

I'm leaving the country for a little over a week and I need some advice on how to keep her entertained while I'm gone.

Currently I take her out to fly and she pretty much spends all day out of the cage but when I leave my parents will be taking care of her and they're not comfortable handling her so they're pretty much just gonna keep her company and make sure she's fed.

I have left her with them before for around the same time (7-8 days), but that was when she had a companion.

I was considering getting a hamster wheel so she would get some excercise .... what do u guys think?

Many budgies don't know how to use a hamster wheel, so as long as her cage is a good size and she can flap around in it, I would hold off on that. Make sure to give her plenty of toys and as long as she gets attention at your parent's house, she should be just fine

Maybe a couple new toys put in her cage just before you leave will help
with keeping her from getting too bored...
