Shipping birds can be made to be less stressful by following some sensible advice from someone experienced in shipping and adhering to the rules and regulations of the shippers. What follows is an outline of how to avoid undue stress, accidents, loss, and/or injury to the parrots that you want to ship. This is also a useful guide when buying a parrot that needs to be shipped. You can be sure that Parrots Online Store goes all the way in ensuring that shipping is hitch-free and smooth.
Parrots Online Store takes a week to make sure the condition of your Parrot is optimal before shipping. Babies on formula don't need any extra supplements, but an older bird may. We fortify them all with a stress reduction preparation such as Avitec's AviBios or Mardel's Ornabac™. These are powdered mixes to be administered to their soft foods for at least a week before shipping and a week afterward shipping. The lactobacillus, probiotics and low ph. levels will help avert bacterial infections resulting from stress. The B-Complex vitamins will help with the stress level itself. We administer these freely to babies as well as adults. Parrots Online Store only sells weaned parrots and all our babies are fully weaned when shipped.
