Boarding Parrotlets

Hi Sandee,

I was wondering, do you board parrotlets or know someone in Northern California that does? We have a 6 month old parrotlet and are planning to go on vacation in October. He's well-behaved and friendly. We are having difficulty finding someone willing to watch him while we are gone as everyone we know is unfamiliar with birds. We live in the Sacramento area. Thank you for your help!


Dear Lea:

Thank you for your email. I have a blog on my page that goes into great detail but I would never board a parrotlet anywhere. Its too stressful and I can't think of a better way to expose your bird to diseases. Its much better to find a certified pet sitter who is licensed and bonded and will come to your home to take care of the bird.

It has been my experience with my big flock that its better to have someone who is NOT familiar with birds taking care of them because a) there is no risk of them exposing your bird to a disease from their birds and b)they will take care of the bird exactly the way you show them NOT how they think it should be done.

Best of luck and I hope this helps!

Sincerely yours,
