Hey all bird lovers,

I am one of them. That's why I am looking into getting another bird, and there is a particular species that I have fallen in love with. There aren't many of these birds in my part of the country, but I have noticed that some breeders will ship their birds. Is this a good idea? Do you ship your birds?
Is pet shipping companies like Citizenshipper( page) are safe to ship them
I know many people do it, but how stressful is it on a bird? Should I even bother to continue daydreaming about getting my dream bird shipped to me?

Or should I just look into another species that is more readily available in my area?

What is everyone's thoughts on shipping birds?

It really depends on the breeder who is shipping and how the bird is handled.
Personally, I'd be very reluctant to have a bird shipped unless I was traveling with it and had the carrier in the passenger area under the seat!

I didn't even like taking my dog when I traveled via air.

By the way, if you are thinking of a lovebird, you would need to house it in a separate room from the budgie(s). I have two lovebirds in one room and my budgies in a different room. Lovebirds can easily bite the toes off budgies if the budgie lands on the lovebird's cage.

I agree with FaeryBee, I would not ship a bird, I've heard too many awful stories about animals being shipped. Unless I was on the plane and the bird in the cabin with me I would not do it.

You are very welcome.

As an aside, this forum never recommends housing different species of birds in the same cage.
For example, if you have a cockatiel, it should be housed in a separate cage from your budgie(s).

Best wishes!
