What type of carers are available for my birds?

It depends on your set up, quantity and what service you need. For example if you own 1 budgie, and their cage is very portable, you might have your budget stay at a Pet Sitter’s home.

If you own a large avery, or a chicken coop, and own multiple birds, chickens, or large birds, you might book a Sitter that offers Home Visits once daily or twice daily.

If you are away for longer than a few days, a House Sitter to come and stay in your home might be the best solution.

How will a Bird Sitter help care for my birds?

Sitters when visiting can change the cage paper daily, or add a cage cover of an evening. If you have chickens that are free to roam during the day, a Sitter can come past in the mornings to let them out of their coop, and give them fresh feed and water, and then visit in the late afternoons every day to usher your chickens back into their coop for the night.

We can feed them with fresh chopped greens and corn, sprouts, pellets / seed. Natural and Foraging toys. Special diets will be catered for. Fresh water changed twice daily, cuddling and patting, we can give them sun showers, or play their preferred music.

Can birds be left alone for a week?

No. Lots of birds, including parrots, cockatoos and macaws, suffer distress when left alone with no human contact. Birds can also contract a bacterial infection in just a few hours if the water is very dirty from them soiling it. If you are heading away, book a Carer through PetCloud to come in twice a day to feed and change the water.
