Question Questions about travel???

I have a meyer's parrot who is a little over a year and a half old. I am a freshman in college across the country. When at home i spend 6-8 hours a day with the bird. I am going to move out of the dorms and into an apartment and want to bring my bird to live with me. I was wondering how stressful a move will be on my bird? and are there anythings that I should know about moving with a bird?

Re: Questions about travel???

well if your bird is happy with you, and you introduce her to her new home slowly i am sure she will adjust

just mark out a nice quiet area for the cage and a place she can view most of her new home from safety of her cage?
let her see the stuff you pack in the boxes, so when she is in her new home she is not suddenly surrounded by strange boxes etc

nut kinda got brought up to mine in a travel cage and spent a week in it, before her main cage came up, it took some settling time over a month but we was a completely new family with different routines from my brother, things that were new to her completely freaked her out, like the hoover! ironing boards etc
as she is flighted i wanted to have her familiar with the house, but she still now will not go into certain rooms alone, even when with someone she does the tall skinny on our shoulders

right now she is behind me on top of her cage making cute little whistling sounds and high squeaks because she wants a head rub again!!! she is to lazy to come to me for them
