Even more prone to anxiety than cats and dogs, birds are highly sensitive creatures that need special attention during the process of moving. Birds are especially sensitive to temperature changes, and can become ill if the climate around them changes too dramatically or too quickly.

Your birds can be transported in their usual cage, but a cover should be placed around it to prevent exposure to temperature changes and wind. This will also help keeping your bird calm. Put the cage in an area of the car that has adequate ventilation, but remove food and water containers to prevent spills while the car is moving. However, you should still feed and water the birds according to their usual schedule.

Investigate local requirements at your destination regarding birds' entry into a new state. Make a trip to the veterinarian prior to moving and obtain any necessary health records and certificates.

Note: Small pets such as birds must be shipped by Air Express (a division of air freight). Minimize your pet's stress by avoiding through-checking and changing planes.
