Smile Wanting to buy new cages and a new parrot


Due to me moving to another province next year and out of my parents house to go pursue my studies, I am needing to make some changes.

First of all, I don't have my parents moaning about my noisy Indian Ringneck and also, I will have my new place totally to myself. This means I can get another parrot.

But now I need to know. Do I bring the bulky cage I have my IRN in at the moment down with me(my dad suggested strapping the cage to the top of my car) or do I go and buy a new cage when I get there?

I would move the cage you have. Parrots get stressed moving. Having his cage changed and his home changed at the same time might be to much. Plus when you get a new cage you shouldn't just plop him in it. Parrots do better if they have time to look at the new cage from the old and move over when they are ready.
Good luck

I would also take his cage with you. As said above, it is stressful for a bird to move so keeping as many of his familiar things as possible is a great idea.

I know it is exciting to be on your own and such but if you are in school taking studies... maybe you should wait on getting another bird until you know where your future sits.
