Keeping your birds quiet

My condo is being fumigated in a couple weeks, so I need to stay at a hotel for a couple of days. I have 2 parakeets and 1 linnie. The two hotels that I called today were surprised when I said that my pets are birds. One said no, I cannot bring birds, only cats, dogs and fish. The second and across the street from where I work, was a little hesitant and asked if they are really noisy. Miss Kauai does squawk at the top of her lungs first thing in the morning. The other parakeet, Coco, isn't noisy in the morning but later in the afternoon. Miss Chanel may or may not respond to Miss Kauai and can also be a little noisy. Is there a way to keep them a little quieter, at least early in the morning? Would keeping the cover over the cage keep them quiet? I don't really want to board them, especially Miss Chanel.

Yes, it would but, eventually, you will have to uncover them and they might get vocal then but budgies and linnies are not really noisy. I think they asked you this thinking of a cockatoo or a macaw screaming...

Just as a side note, if the hotel is advertised as pet friendly, they cannot tell you not to bring your birds, pets are pets unless they specify which species are welcome and which are not in writing (look at their website and check it out).

And why on earth would they prefer cats and dogs that can pee on and destroy things over birds that are generally in cages when out in strange areas?

We had the same problem when we took two of our birds with us on a short vacation to the beach. Pet friendly but birds are a problem. Birds will be on a playstand on in there cages. Dont understand people.

Really, fish!? I wouldn't even consider them a "pet" since they are in water.....they can't deny you bringing a bucket of water . Hotels are so weird.

I, too, was surprised that the hotels have a problem with birds. I think dogs barking are as loud or louder than my little kids. I think people must be thinking of a larger bird. The reaction was almost as though they never thought of birds as pets.

Maybe if you tell them they are small birds, "just little parakeets" they would understand that the noise won't be any worse than a barking dog, occasional, but not continuous. They probably are thinking of big, loud parrots and that is why they don't want them. And yes, kids can be way noisier than birds!

I would state what species they are and I doubt you'd have a problem I wouldn't know what to suggest though, all birds make noise! But then so do most people
