I'd rather mine stay at home, I don't know any bird sitters etc around here but I'd give my boyfriend my keys or something to come here every day and look after them. Luckily though my granddad never ever comes on holiday with us and stays at home so he usually looks after my birds while I'm away. I'm really scared of leaving my conure at home when I go on holidays but that's when I'm going to get my boyfriend to come over. He's the most needy of my birds and needs attention every day for quite long periods of time otherwise he gets really stressed out. Obviously all my birds need fresh fruit and water every single day too so he needs to keep a close eye on that for me. If you're going to leave them with a friend make sure you leave a care sheet of what they can eat, what they eat every day, what they can't eat, hazards etc etc and list of contact numbers if needed. It also depends how long you go away for, but I mean certain places if near by I'm sure you could perhaps take your bird with you?
