Prepare Your Pet Bird Disaster Kit

Create a bird-disaster kit for your pet bird in case of emergencies.

By Nikki Moustaki

1) Have plenty of supplies on hand: fresh water for several days, pet bird food and canned fruits and vegetables.

2) An avian first-aid kit should include styptic powder, bandages and clamps for pulling out broken blood feathers, if necessary.

3) Keep additional pet bird  toys in your bird-disaster kit to help calm a sensitive pet bird in the case of evacuation.

4) Add a pair of wire cutters to your bird-disaster kit in case a damaged pet bird cage needs to be pried opened.

This is a great article. I live in Nevada and we do have lots of earthquakes. Why don't you sell a first/aid kit for birds on your site? I would order one.
