Our caring Birdsville team will insure your bird will be well cared for with our premium service in our climate controlled premises, where you will have peace of mind that your loving companion is well feed, stimulated, happy with a team of animal carers who are employed for their passion for animals.

What you need to bring for bird boardingBird Boarding

  • 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.

Please Note:

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 teritorial and attack each other in new/different environment.

Hormonal inbalance can sometime occur in new/different evironments, 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 seperate the animals and an additional charge will be incured.  We do have a passionate team of young animal carers and senior staff from rspca, zoo, vet nurse and other animal walfair back grounds doing the best job they can.

If in the unusual circumstance you arrive early we dont refund but you can organise to have credit with boarding, so if you arrive 2 days early, you will get 2 days worth of boarding credit for your next stay.  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 cant be reversed.


Important Boarding dates to note

If the date up require for picking up or dropping off your animal falls on any of the dates or public holidays below, you will need to bring your animal in or pick your animal up a day earlier or later. On these dates, we will have people looking after the animals in store, but strictly not be taking in or allowing any drop offs or pick ups on the following dates.  This is due to reduced or limited staff members due to public holidays or increased customer volume such as Christmas Eve.

During Christmas Holidays Boarding stays shorter than 14 days during the period between the 16/12/18 and the 7/1/18 will incur a $2.50 charge per day, keeping in mind the days we are not open are included.  Remember below are the dates that birdsville is not open to the public.
