Re: Baxter's first road trip - any advice?

Quick update... Baxter did great on his first road trip! I was worried he would be screaming for the entire 5 hours but he was an angel. He was even doing some new vocalizations I had never heard before! He was a very tired birdie tonight, that's for sure.

Thank you all for your input! I appreciate it so much.

Re: Baxter's first road trip - any advice?

Great! I'm glad it worked out well. . Now is the time to get him accustomed to all the things you want him to be able to do in the future.
It's scary for birds who are set in their ways already, and not used to exploring. I admit my birds aren't used to it, and they get very stressed out and scared going in the carrier and out of the house. To them it is not a treat, it's "ohhh nooo!!!" The more easily 'moldable' baby stage goes away so quickly too if you procrastinate .
