Your Bird, It's Carrier

What to look for in your bird's carrier

By Jessica Pineda

A pet bird takes a vacation in his travel carrierTravel with pets is on the rise, with more and more people bringing their dogs and cats with them on their family vacation. What’s to say a bird can’t come to? In order to travel with your bird, you’ll need an item that is often forgotten on the new bird purchasing list: the travel carrier.

A good carrier is often a one-time purchase: when you buy a bird, it is usually almost full grown (except for young macaws, which have tail feathers that will grow very, very long). An excellent carrier accommodates your bird’s size, allows it to stand up straight, turn around, stretch its wings and perch with ease. Many bird-designed carriers come with food and water bowls and a hook to place a toy. When looking for a carrier for your bird, also consider if it is easy to clean and airline-approved, as well as what it is made of.
