We have two cockatiels and are looking to get an African Grey to add to the family. Since we're only 30 days from starting out FT, does anyone else have birds they travel with? Do they adapt okay and do you have them clipped?

We don't travel with birds, but I was camped in Laughlin, Nevada a week ago and the couple next to us had a parrot. I first noticed the bird when the women came out of her MH with the bird on her shoulder...they got in the car and drove off....talking to them later, they told us the bird goes everywhere they go.

We currently have one Timneh Gray but have traveled with him as well as a Goggin's cockatoo and a Quaker parrot. It is a bit much with three birds.

All of them have adapted well to travel. We normally use a small travel cage, so they do need a fair amount of time out of the cage.

We lived in the trailer for a year and used his smaller Avian Adventures cage. We removed one of the recliners and put his cage there.

Three years ago we had the gray and the cockatoo in the trailer for 4 months. I built a stacking rack and stacked the cages where one of the recliners was located.

You do have be doubly aware of fumes in such a closed up space...cleaners, hair spray and cooking with Teflon skillets. Just keep the vent fan running when cooking or spraying.

In the truck, the gray shares the back seat of the truck with two schnauzers. He rides in a travel cage.

Duncan (the gray) has been an RVing bid for about 8 years now.

Guess from you name you are from the cheese head state. We have two extra Avian Adventures cages now.
