Food On The Go For Traveling Pet Birds

Pack these foods while traveling with your pet bird.

By Anastasia Thrift

When heading out on the road with your pet bird, follow basic travel tips and pack pet bird food for on the go.

Packing protein and fat, a few nuts can go a long way. Less food in carriers means less mess – for your car and your pet bird’s travel environment. Both create a more pleasant trip.

A spray of millet makes a handy portable pet bird food. Because it’s irresistible to many birds, seeing a spray of millet in a travel cage creates enticement to enter the unusual environment.

Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, from which the body makes Vitamin A, and Vitamins B and C, potassium, thiamine, folic acid and magnesium. Keeping your bird healthy on the road helps prevent contraction of new viruses it might encounter.

Fresh Fruit
Fresh fruit, such as apple slices, hold lots of liquid and make a great hydrating snack for pet birds. For trips under two hours, packing a water source isn’t necessary. During those trips you can supplement your water supply with these water-bearing treats.
