Traveling in Style

I’m all about providing the utmost comfort for my birds during travel... and letting them travel in style! So, we recently bought a trailer for all our stuff (20 feet long) and made the first few feet an area exclusively for the birds!

Here's what that area holds currently: From the left is a tall cage separated into 3 different cage spaces (it was designed that way and you can (see it here). Then we have a taller parrot cage, two of the same, right next to one another. We have the same type of cage, only a smaller size, for our three parakeets as well.

The rest of the trailer is filled with shelving for bird food, toys, accessories, and more. Plus, clean up stuff like a broom and newspaper. Anything we need for the birds fits in the shelves.  

Each cage has 3-5 foraging toys each. This makes it so that you don't have food dishes spilling all over the place and wasted food. It can be a bumpy ride sometimes...  

I took a few short videos of my medium's bird's set ups. I thought it'd get pretty bland doing it for each cage. Keep in mind, these are merely traveling cages only for when we are on the road. They aren't their normal cages when they're at home in Orlando.  

All the cages are actually bolted down to the floor and/or to the wall so they're not going anywhere! And if you're wondering what that paperwork is in the trailer, we have to have permits to own exotics in Florida so that is our permits and such if anyone were to ask for it.
