It's not for sure that I'll be moving but it's a high possibility. I just want to be well informed and plan things ahead of time. I want to buy my birds a new cage, toys, and treats for Christmas but I don't know if it'll be possible to move it too. Please give me everything you can. The possible state is California so like how will the plane ride work, any regulations, etc?

Reason: Adding more information suggestions
I would say to wait until you know for sure if you ware moving or not to buy them the cage and toys, etc. It's always easier to move with a smaller cage and fewer items, so if you are definitely moving, postponing their Christmas gift would be better

I am a licensed FAA A&P mechanic (retired) , and would never let any live pet of mine fly in the checked baggage area , if you find you cannot bring your bird into the cabin with you (While I know all about aircraft maintenance regulations , I know nothing of what each airline allows regarding traveling pets) in my opinion you'd be best to make the move a road trip adventure VS flying .
Do many pets fly each day in the cargo hold to no detriment ? Of course they do . But , In my working years I can't count how many perished pet tragedies I witnessed , and I would never take the chance with my Birdie ...
Waiting until you get to your new place would be best to buy the new items. I would never bring any animal on a plane unless it was on my lap, even if I had to buy a seat next to me, I would. As init4fun indicated, it can be very dangerous to put any animal in cargo.
