Microchipping; yay or nay?

Hey all, I feel like all I do is ask questions here, but heres another one:
I'm moving across the country in a few weeks and my birds have no bands, is microchipping a good idea? What are the risks, your individual experiences, benifits? Do shelters/vets actually check birds for chips? I have worked in the veterinary field for 7 years and have never seen one scanned for a chip, or implanted with one at either of my clinics. I know when I worked Avian medicine we offered it, but no one ever wanted it... Opinions?
Thanks for all your knowledge everyone!
