Your Birds will be in an active room with people frequently in the room and other birds in the same room. They will never feel alone.
- You will need your birds favourite behavioural enrichment toys to play with during their stay, this is a requirement for all birds boarding with us, as it is our policy to provide stimulation and behavioural enrichment toys to our birds. You can bring your own toys or purchase some new toys at Birdsville. We will not board birds without enrichment toys, as your bird will naturally miss the owners (you) while you are away as this can stress the bird and make it possible for your bird to start plucking, this is why we will not board any bird without toys. Separation anxiety is real with birds and a mix with toys and the fact our boarding facility is very open with a hive of activity all day long your bird should enjoy staying at the Birdsville hotel.
Animals with any diseases or illness are not able to be bordered at our boarding facility, due to risk of infection of other animals.
When boarding, there is always a risk of stress or plucking, as it is a new/different environments. To minimise the chance of this, we require all boarders to have enrichment toys.
Animals kept with another animal in a cage (even if they share a cage at home) can in rare cases become territorial and attack each other in new/different environment.
Hormonal imbalance can sometime occur in new/different environments, causing females to become clucky/broody and both male and females personalities to change for short period towards owners and enclosure mate. Although these are rare, some enclosure mates can attack the other enclosure mate.
If we happen to notice that one of the cage mates is being bullied, we will notify the owner that we have had to unfortunately separate the animals and an additional charge will be incurred. We do have a passionate team of young animal carers and senior staff from rspca, zoo, vet nurse and other animal walfare back grounds doing the best job they can.
If in the unusual circumstance you arrive early we don’t refund. If you arrive late you will be charged those extra days, keep in mind birds that have been left in store for over 15 days in arrears past what has been paid for are deemed obandoned and will need to be moved on and found a home, once this has happened it can’t be reversed.
