Your Pet Bird Information Pack should include:
1. Bird Profile
Keep a profile of your bird’s information and any medical conditions. Include a brief description of your bird’s name, species, colors (mutation type, any significant color makings), physical (missing toe, scars), talking ability (phrases your bird regularly says), whether your bird’s wing feathers are trimmed, and if it wears a leg band or has a microchip.
2. Keep Current Pictures
Take current pictures of your bird. They will prove useful in the event that your bird goes missing. While most proud pet owners regularly photograph their feathered friends, it is important to know what pictures will be most useful. Be sure to take photos that show your bird entirely, not just its face, and that will make your bird look unique and unmistakable in the photo. Make sure that the picture is clear and in focus.
3. Emergency Contacts
Keep a list of emergency contacts. Relatives or friends who have agreed to help out in an emergency, your primary and backup avian veterinarians, and local pet-friendly hotels and motels.
Where To Keep Information
Keep information on your bird all together. If you have multiple birds, get a clear, plastic page holder or a folder for each of your pets. Having up-to-date information increases your chances of being reunited should you be separated from your pet birds.
Make a Bird Disaster Kit
Be prepared for emergency situations and have a Bird Disaster Kit on hand. More>>
Keep all of the information in a place that you can easily access. The Pet Bird Information Pack should be kept in your Avian First-Aid Kit and Bird Disaster Kit. Both kits should be kept together near the bird carriers. Another option is to tape a clear document holder to the bottom of your bird’s carrier that holds your Bird Profile, current photos and emergency contacts. If you are separated from your pet birds, at least their information is with them.
