At James Parrots, the roost is made no higher than an inch from the base. Along these lines, the parrot will not fall hard or get captured under the roost during choppiness. We likewise line the lower part of the transporter with paper or folded then packed down paper drying so the bird has a superior traction on the off chance that it stays on the base. We additionally to tape a thick piece of cardboard mostly up the front entryway if the climate is nasty or on the off chance that we are transporting children. For parrots that are extra-enormous and can bite through generally material, (for example, hyacinths and Black palm cockatoos), we line the whole case with equipment fabric. We generally transport reinforced combines independently or in a different compartment inside the case to stay away from stress wounds. We fill the lower part of the box with the seed (as well as pellets if that is their eating regimen). It functions as a decent sheet material liner and gives the parrots sustenance in the event that they need to eat during the flight. We place blocks of succulent organic product in the compartment on the floor – grapes, apples, oranges, and so forth This will give the bird(s) with fluids during the flight and any delays. Simply be certain that there is sufficient nourishment for the bird(s) in the event of a 1 or 2 days delay! At long last, we add an additional piece of equipment fabric over the whole entryway of the box with the goal that nobody is enticed to make the way for investigate or to take the parrot. We generally ensure the boxes have the “LIVE BIRDS” mark on it, which is for the most part given by the carrier.
