Boarding Birds

Boarding Birds

I have two parrotlets now Diva who is now 8 and Paul 4
Diva is albino female - she is a bad ass

Paul is a lutino yello.... looks just like woodstock - Very yellow not playful or cuddley

and I have a Pinonus


I have a dog walker friend who comes and feeds my birds for two years BUT now the Pinonus SCREAMS! if we leave it alone. Screams at our friend who feeds all three of them and give him foot toys EVERYDAY!

It happened after thanks giving that he changed into this screamer



Anyone know of a place in CT or NY that will board this size medium bird?


I don't know what to do to keep him from screaming and I can't have him screaming if I'm not home I will get evicted.

He is a rescue but never did this screaming until now.
Also we are super scared and traumatized of drawing blood from out bird for boarding as we had the worse thing that could ever happen to a bird owner. I wont go into details but you can view my other post.

Exclamation

What color is your Pinonus parrot? ( is the head blue? ).


What age is the pinonus? What sex?


They live to be 25 years old and I wonder if he/she is going through puberty? Normally, the Pinonus parrot does not have a loud and noisy nature and by themselves, they are relatively a quieter bird species.


Since he/she is a rescue bird, we do not know what has made it scream. It might be lonely or starting to get sick. Usually when behavior starts to change, then something is going on to make it change. It could be sickness, hormones, loneliness, atmospheric changes ( like it is too cold or not enough light, etc.).


This is about all I understand about the Pinonus, except that they make goo pets.

Have you checked any local bird rescue in your area? Sometimes they will board for you, I know my parrot rescue here takes in birds to board and if it's a good rescue they are probably more equiped and experience than a regular pet store.

Another thought is there a bird club in your area or town? Maybe one of the members would be willing to watch your birds.

aeriadne will become famous soon enough

Hi, Will – I currently work at the Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine in NYC (Upper West Side) and we board birds. However, you will need to come in for a physical exam as well as have a few tests conducted (for a pionus, I believe it is Chlamydia and PBFD) before you board. I understand you had a bad experience, but this is done to ensure only healthy birds are sharing the same airspace and not spreading any diseases. I don't know what vet you went to before, but CAEM is the only exclusively avian and exotic animal hospital in all of NYC and there's even an avian-board certified vet on staff. I've been bringing my own birds here for over a decade!

I have never had a pionus. Have you tried putting him in his cage when he screams and only paying attention to him when he is quiet? Regarding apartment living, what used to bother me when I lived in them in the past - was the people blaring thumping music and loud tv's.
